Confidence

Men of great confidence
are men
who make their abodes
within the borders
of the world of people
and never dare to
venture outside
of its boundaries.

Those who live in the greater world,
the world outside of people,
the world which stretches beyond
the limits of the peopled world
are never
confident.
They are fragile and frail.
They shake with awe and fear.
They are frozen by wonder.
And they tremble at the vistas
which lie outside of their windows.
They tremble.
They shake.
For their living space
requires such a nature.
