Push, Push

Push comes
I resist
now I’m battered and bruised
proclaiming life is unfair.

Push comes
I push back
battle ensues
now I’m battered and bruised.

Push comes
I step back
no resistance do I give.
This time I remain unhurt
but still feeling life is unfair.

Serenity comes slowly
a lesson learned in layers
until there is no need
for the push any more.
