It’s all we have

Watching robins or squirrels

Scurry about

Seeking food or a mate

Remind us of how simple

Their lives are

But therein lies our challenge


Free will

Don’t really know if it is free will

We all benefit or struggle from our birth heritage

Wealth, race, disability, gender, upbringing

All we have is nature or nurture

At the end of the day then

Is there a measure

Of a person

A clear understanding

Of good or evil

Seems the media tells us

Just by what they shout out

What grabs people’s attention

Like a traffic accident

Is presented as news

And yet in our heart of hearts

Yours and mine

We know how we were

At the end of the day

Did we do the best we could

In a a very confusing world and

Resolve to do better
