Hermit's Existence

Life is all about questions and answers.

I think I have found the answer to a question,
asked myself many times.

How I can live life free, never causing another
person any hurt or despair?

Become a recluse and live all by myself,
never having to answer to anyone except me.

Finding a place deep in the wilderness to play.

I could eat or sleep and not being concerned,
about a clock or what the calendar displays.

It would not matter what day of the week or,
month, or even the year after Christ's death.

The only things I would have to worry about,
would be the seasons, what I need to sustain.

I would never drain life or happiness from another soul,
I would have only myself to console.

I could argue or fight with myself, no one having to win.

There would only be discussions, made inside my head.

I would never even have to speak, my heart, my mind,
could communicate clearly without any fear.

Never making someone else unhappy by what I say or do.

I would have to live a life, being true only to myself,
using all of my resources, brawn and wit.

This sounds like the kind of life that would let me be myself.

All living things around, being the same as me,
responsible only for themselves.

A hermit's existence, only accounting to themselves and nature.

Giving this some more thought, I realize that there would be no,
Medicare, or geriatric wards in the wilderness, my brawn and wit
don't seem to be up to the task.

Maybe I will just have to sit here look at the screen, talking to myself.

Really life is good, I am able to write and win arguments with myself.
