only our responses to life

are within our control

the rest is a bombardment

of our past sins or fresh hell

from assholes who'll never get it

and take as many down into

their own hells as they can manage

and those of us who know better

agonize because we know how easy

it is to slip and fall from an unconsidered action

an emotional reaction that will undo

all we've striven to make fundamental...

begin to amend with what is immediately at hand

and leave the rest to resolve itself....
