Ain't afraid of no ghost.

There is a trick, but it comes with a rub.
They are one in the same, and here it (they) is (are)...
You don't matter.
Only they matter, everything else is nothing.
Only they are what you are here for.
That is the rub.
The trick is if you can accept that, then you have a pretty great life ahead of you.
But letting go of your ego, putting them before all, every single thing, that is the trick.
They didn't ask for this life.
They don't need to know about your dreams and aspirations.
They don't need your baggage.
(Unless it is nice baggage, made of leather and properly oiled, then they might need that some day)
All they need is people to take care of them.
It is up to you to figure out the best way to do that
within your own personal and societal capacity.
That's all it takes.
You laugh at their jokes.
You kiss their noses.
You rock them to sleep while they slap at your face.
That knot in your shoulders from carrying them in the rain?
That is a badge of honor you live with proudly.
Those lost hours of personal time you could have spent writing your novel?
You get those back once you've successfully seen them off to India
where they can figure things out for themselves!
Thanks India! I'll be on the beach crisping myself under the remnants
of whatever is left of the ozone layer.
You dedicate yourself to this life.
It's the only way.
End of story.
I love you guys.
Seriously, look at these jerks.
Take a second, I got time....
I mean, have you ever seen a bigger couple of assholes?
All smiling like there's shit to smile about?
That is my impression of most of the jaded people that
I have met, or worked with in New York City.
I like to imagine the that designed these, whatever they are.
I bet they really got a kick out of their job and life.
It takes a person with a good sense of humor to
do something like this.
Anyways, it's up by Christies if you ever get the chance to check it out.

It takes a lot of things in this life.
It takes work, lots of hard work.
It take a village, a helpful village.
It takes patience, endless amounts of patience.
It takes time, all of the time.
It takes focus, keen focus.
It takes perseverance, look it up.
It takes calm, settle down.
It takes a sense of humor, always... ALWAYS!!
It takes love, but love is not enough.
It takes acceptance that it is okay to be alive and
enjoy yourself while you can because in the grand scheme
of things, you blink and you're in the dirt...
Or a shark, or possibly a bear.
If you play your cards right.
