rely on no one but yourself
your neighbor won't help you
(especially if you don't submit to his philosophy)
your lover won't help you
he or she is too busy trying to hold up his or her end
to have much care for your inability or misplaced trust
and no not even your closest friend will help you
(and how often...how often friend and foe
inhabit a single body...a single souls...a single mind)
God or any of our imaginings of same?
let's not even go there
for whom vengeance trumps the love grace mercy and forgiveness
that is expected of us...no...learn it now...learn it hard...learn it fast...
rely on no one but yourself...
