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 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 it now...learn it hard...learn it fast...

rely on no one but yourself...
