Noisy World

The tragedy is
that most of us are just trying
(on quiet knees)
to raise nice kids,
maybe write a little,
to rid ourselves of worry,
…………………………..fear.

The tragedy is,
there are always things
we get to choose:
kindness
joy
……… love
and peace.

And when we don’t,

…………………………….we all lose.

    Yes. This is the truth, as well as it can be said.

    I like how you tucked in those letter-stacking messages, like “ess love” and “kin joy.”

Use your words.
