The way

What is my task

When the path of (ego) defense

Is heightened offense?

The need for protection is real

And the path chosen is effective,

Yet being lost in the dark

Is still a cry for help.

My role is unchanged

By aggression or blustered words.

I am only a guide, a ferryman

Holding the lamp

Pointing toward the path

Awaiting in the other shore.
