Few things follow me around.
I leave them behind, when they’re no longer needed.
Few people’s influence will resound.
I grow away with each piece of advice heeded.
Not much I choose to keep in my life.
I lose a little with every bit of knowledge I gain.
Not many who can drag me into strife.
I walk away before they can cause me pain.
Little of this world, will get to me.
I ignore all the drama in favor of my sanity.
Little of what’s out there, I care to see.
I care not for the obsession with vanity.
Nearly none of it I find really matters.
I doubt much of it is even real.
Nearly all of it, in the wind just scatters.
I find it all lacks enticing appeal.
None of it is really worth my time.
I keep my precious seconds for other adventures.
None of it deserves my hard-earned dime.
I save them for more practical ventures.
But there are things I cannot shake.
I seem to need them no matter what I choose.
The pain they bring can cause my sanity to break.
They can consume my time, these I hope not to lose.
They follow me around, no matter where I go.
Their influence on my life may lay me low.
