ode to be the bigger person

to see the stupidity in another’s ways &

to decide on the route of complete indifference

before giving them the satisfaction

of getting into a little spat which might

drain precious seconds, hours, days, weeks, months


unfortunately for some,


from one’s life.


ode to the bigger person who looks in the eyes of

the mundane &

sees that the kick that will be granted them

from simply staying in the ring without any cause but


fight for the sake,

to dig & dig & dig

with no real motive beyond self-gratification &

no evidence of any reason for the skirmish to begin


will simply thrill them to no end &

to halt it all with one clean swoop,

ignoring the pleas for conflict &

ignoring the need for attention.


ode to the bigger person

who when walking away from an idiot

who will not stop needling,

simply chalks it up to experience &

takes pride in their own actions,

for the bigger person knows that

their own personal high ground

is one that cannot be shaken &

with each moronic conflict averted

comes a strength great enough

to keep on through the infinite struggle.
