you've done enough damage

let healing be

and healing will be

let love truly forgive

and all will be forgiven

and how strange to find this out

how all this goodness is true

and so many years living with it

and not really seeing it....

fellows souls of anguish...

boy where we fools

we thought so much about evil

we wound up making an opening for evil

but souls...we do not have to go on

playing the dummy

we can just (for starters) lift our faces

and open our eyes

and see the good sky that makes

an opening for us

you'll be happy where you end up

so will I...that is...where you end up

and where I end up...

no secret to any living soul

it will be the same place

and the same living

but fresh chances

to do it right

you're going to have to read something else

I'm going back to work

back to real writing

you'll need some other

romance to read....

now what will you do

as your time wraps up

but never as soon as you'd like it?

soon enough all this terror will pass

and you'll find yourself nonplussed

at how brief the time in this life

as you wake up in another and all you know

is that somehow you passed someone familiar

all night tossing and turning

worrying about work

worrying about death

worrying about everything

that grew rank

as life slipped away

and still demanded its due

which could no longer be afforded

that too often



are all that remain

reduced from

his wisdom
