Critics and Admirers

So – if we deal with people, we

Will find that we have both;

It’s s’posed to make us wiser, and

Contribute to our growth


The critics say we’re lost, but then,

We knew that all along;

Admirers say we’re fine as is,

But then, that just seems wrong


We all are on our journeys, and

We can’t foresee all ends:

It turns out what we really need

Is simple: we need friends


For while they may admire us

Or criticize us, too —

We walk along together, that’s

The most we hope to do


It’s part of our humanity:

While wand’ring the unknown,

If we do it together, then

At least

We’re not
