Copy No One

Copy No One

the message again appeals for such strength
copy no one
be who we are
copy no one
be each a star

a star in our own play
a lifetime of learning
experiencing the scene changes
as we continue our journeying

sometimes the hero
sometimes the clown
sometimes the action verb
sometimes the noun

Plutarch once told us
“I don’t need a friend who changes
when I change and who nods when I nod
my shadow does that much better”

and in this lifetime of scenes
does a pattern emerge?
has an opportunity arrived
with a new storm surge?

call on the wisdom
ancestral or divine
we can change the script
and the message this time
