angst cycle (iii) — [У] (v)

i’ve never faced
those great difficulties
of a life
in a challenged civilisation

just peace growth and pleasing discourse

the life–distressing challenges
are those minimum intensely troubling
that life gives all who survive

so my internal conflicts
difficult to me
are blades of grass melting slightly in the wind
compared to the desert of my species’ majority
in history recorded and lost

but they still fuck me up
