To have only a paucity of the fullness of life 


Due to an impediment, or limitation,


Lacking to accost inner fragilities,


Can be an unconscious act


Born through


An inability to accept adversity, 


We are suffering 


From it as a species


In epidemic proportions,


But cognitive dissonance


Can be an uncomfortable 


State of mind.



When we were babies,


We liked crapping our pants, too.
