169. They are not so bad

Learn to work with those
Beside you.
They are, after all,
Not so bad.
Your body may sleep too much,
But it tries
To wake up.
Your vital may fight too much,
But it does quite often appreciate
A life of peace.
Your mind may doubt too much,
But it does secretly admire
A life of faith.
Therefore,
Learn to work with those
Beside you.
As I told you,
After all, they are not so bad.
