Did you ever wonder how we
Almost, but not quite, manage to
Verify our existence–
Instead of enjoying it?
Don’t we know better?

When we enter
Into this
Life, we must learn to
Instead of merely being.
And I understand how
Much life needs love.

How can we
Allow ourselves to
Live without ever
Learning to enjoy?

–‘Confidant’ 1989
