grace and dignity...


ahh the foibles of humanity
running hither and thither about
gnashing our teeth with inanity
wishing
eloquent pleas for clemency
sackcloth and ashes notwithstanding
turning our back on dependency
hoping
mistakes of the past will remain
dignified plasticine effigy
yes this is exquisite pain
growing
no empty smiles and no false heart
this is not a rehearsal
just keep going if you missed the start
RUNNING
history teaches the lessons we need
if only we'll look to the Elders
spirits were broken eventually freed
this is GRACE
