CHASING OUR TAIL

Always so elusive
How my answers never show
Always leave me hanging
With these questions that I know

Perhaps I’ve known them all along
But don’t want to perceive
That we can’t come together
Something I do not believe

Yet when we could be giants
Far too often we choose small
Forgetting that we’re all in this
Together after all

An oversimplifying
Of this world around I see
As it pursues its tail
While never hearing history
