Decisions

what next?

I think I know

 

a path

obvious in its sharpness

straight and steep and bland

 

a path

hidden to the left

winding and traipsing and interesting

 

a stone

comfortably set in this spot

round and stable and stagnant

 

which do you choose?

I think I know

Phoenix

into the throes of vivid decay

bursts

life anew

blinding

brilliant

bristling

edges sharp

ready to cut against the tissue

stiff

scarred

sacred

the slow pressures

find

the center

the whole

the truth

start again

find home

here

always

Feed Your Children

in the moments that stretch

small kindness

huge laughter

tiny things

love features prominently

no person can remove it

legislate it away

compassion is correct

keep it close

spread it through outstretched fingers

look at the beauty

remember, good or ill

all things are temporary

appreciate love, even for the most miniscule of seconds

let go of frustration

remember

change comes from the ground up, not the top down

do not forget the wrongs

but do not let them fester

remember that you are the right thing

you can change the wrongs

back into love
