Some people likewise

It is a wise thing
To live life so as to be
No one’s enemy
Do I have enemies?
I wonder . . .
Mostly I have tried to do good,
But sometimes I’ve made people angry.
Mostly they’ve gotten over it.
I have helped build up a number of tribal colleges, but I’m a little frightened now.
What I know for sure
Is that there are all kinds of fire that affect a life.
I have not always (apparently at least) been in charge of the people and situation I have encountered. My response to them is another matter. And I am sure things will be similar in the future.
