Make you better

DSC_1434a.jpg

 

Lessons learned and unlearned

 

Things throw weird shapes

Form odd configurations

Like a row of crooked tombstones

Or an old man’s broken teeth

Life is never tidy

Rarely tied up in a neat bow

We stagger over the

Obstacle course of our mistakes

Get tangled in the barbed wire of our

Pointless battles

And rail against our self-inflicted injustices

In our fruitless search for that perfect

Tranquil life

And why we have to grow so old

Before it finally dawns that

Perfection is in the moments

Never in the years

Is a mystery beyond this bad poet’s ken.
