TO GO ON
To not make more mistakes, suffering
knowledge through experience
to walk the tracks, as a freight train
bullets by, thousands of tons of lead
obliterating its path, life has a way
to numb one, to leave one in terror
of our own incompetence, to stand
in awe, confounded, afraid to decide
to go on, left only to plead for mercy
and understanding from the Gods.
