      if i can’t do
      what i want to do
      then my job is to not
      do what i don’t want
      to do

      it’s not the same thing
      but it’s the best i can

      if i can’t have
      what i want . . . then
      my job is to want
      what i’ve got
      and be satisfied
      that at least there
      is something more to want

      since i can’t go
      where i need
      to go . . . then i must . . . go
      where the signs point
      through always understanding
      parallel movement
      isn’t lateral

      when i can’t express
      what i really feel
      i practice feeling
      what i can express
      and none of it is equal
      i know
      but that’s why mankind
      alone among the animals
      learns to cry
