Something good happens

Something bad,

Something horrible

We move on


In our lives, good news

Or bad, sometimes horrible

We move on


Where are we going

That requires constant

Moving minds,

Restless spirits always

Leaving, never resting


In places of crisis?


No time taken to repair

To sit still and know

That we have talents

To make better

So many we encounter


Training missed in

Intuition, empathy

Things that rarely pay


Victories without profit

Save soothing, maybe saving



Next time, we might say,

As we meet

Then walk around

Needs on the street

Or next door

Or so much closer
