the willing

It is the human condition, the
inertial complacency to remain
locked into position, stabbed
into soft ground, a placeholder
for the rest of our living

but

living breathing moving seeing
acting achieving creating receiving
deleting freeing bleeding retrieving
and meeting meeting meeting

are

acts of intent, of desire, want
and cannot be done from the
seated position, the waiting position
the never-mind-I can’t-be-bothered
position, they are

actions

best left to the willing; the wanting,
the fearless and fearful, the odd
and the normal but the willing part
the essence the trigger the thing
that pushes us

forward

is non-negotiable, dyed in the
wool, and an integral stain on the
human heart, we cannot live, really
live (not like the TV us) if we’re

unwilling.
