Tanka T080

I’d rather struggle
To keep up than struggle to
Pull others along –
It’s harder for me to pull
Others than to push myself

Notes to this poem…

True statement for me. As for pushing people, if you were in the same thing with them, having to make the same sacrifices and suffer the same consequences, I don’t believe in standing behind others to push them and expose them first. You should either be alongside them or in front of them.

The poems titled Tanka, followed by a number, are tanka composed while I was not engaged in some activity during which I frequently composed poetry. That is why these are called the Inactive Tanka collection.
