What is important?
Making the world incrementally better instead of incrementally worse… or at least… keeping it at base line.
Be helpless and dumbfounded,
unable to say yes or no.
Then a stretcher will come from grace
to gather us up.
We are too dull-eyed to see the beauty.
If we say Yes we can, we will be lying.
If we say No, we don’t see it,
that no will behead us
and shut tight our window into spirit.
