I hadn't realized I'd accomplished much

of what I intended to accomplish

I was so wrapped up in the present moment

that I missed the 'permanent' long-term implications

of what I managed to do in spite of myself

my ignorance and my greed

yes we should take the long view

but our short tangles with daily reality

shapes that way forward...

as happens to each of us if we're fortunate enough

to survive our idiocies

when past and present join in total comprehension

new directions spring open and renew hope

even with the same old apparatus of choices in place...
