It is one of those days

when I’ve been exposed to

places in our world

where violence reigns

and to the works of

some very generous folks

who have blessed the lives

of so many —

so many that I feel

the offerings of my life

have been paltry.


But when I go to sleep tonight

I’ll work it out somehow

so as not to be undone.


At least

I’ve not added to the violence.


And I’ll continue looking

for opportunities to do some good.
