The Rest of It

I never learn my way around

And that’s okay

I live a simple life

Just the way I want it

I have a place for games

And places to fill my stomach

There isn’t much else

And that’s the way I love it

I invite over a person sometimes

And we laugh and share a story

I never go to parties

Or enjoy being out in public

There’s a stigma with that

And I think it’s a choice

I’ll change my behavior when I change my mind

But for me it works just fine

One can get by on technology

Those like me before it

I often imagine their struggle

They had to learn their way

And interact with it almost daily

I can meet my needs

Without the rest of it

I enjoy the fire burning for simplicity

And in my head I’m happy

There is no role for me in the rest of it
