OUTSTANDING SELF-DELUSION

Expectations are the enemy of the brave:
Worrying about a future beyond control
Brings with it the burden of self-delusion.

Rating me against you fails the test
Human against human leads to war
Bringing with it mutual destruction

Outstanding people show only one trait
Humility about the possibilities of selfhood
Holding with it a loving distance called care.
