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....
