all these issues
what can you do?
it’s not you really
it’s The General You
not The Private You
in your own home
your own life
it’s one or someone
or somebody, not you
it’s The General You
certainly not The Captain You
in charge of others
productive and instructive
no, it’s The General You
not The Corporal You
who gives to The Salvation Army
or The Lieutenant You
who volunteers at the soup kitchen
and feels close to the front line
no it’s no that you
It’s The General You
who lets you have some space
see things from a distance
with him, not everything
has to be explained

it’s not about you,
all these issues,
so relax 
and take off your shoes
