amazing to me

the endurance from misery

pain does strengthen one

adversity teaches agility and sharpness

of thought

as ancestors sat 'round their fire

so we sip merlot around the fireplace

each in our own ways and level of achievement

hearty laughter 'round the tears

after the ordeal

(even if the laugh is how we dare compare

ourselves to the ancestors who suffered worse privations

so we can post pictures of ourselves dancing 'round

the rim of the volcano on our Facebook pages

LOL indeed)


oh, well, one more lap around the track...
