some endure tragedies onto death
others sweat broken fingernails and missed appointments
somewhere in this absurd range of experience
is the common thread that binds us...
the will to continue
and the wisdom of perspective
to discriminate what strengthens the heart
and what darkens the soul...
mercy on those who know
or who have yet to learn
