Adversity*

Life is too short to dwell on the detail
Allowing the pessimists to prevail.
Bad things happen
And people get hurt
-Surely that’s enough to keep us alert
To the diverse nature of human need?
Our sole common purpose,
To succeed.
Taking action to make a change.
The simplest way, to rearrange
The scattered debris, shards of glass,
These marks of the present the scars of the past,
Debris from human and physical stories
Explaining humanity’s unspoken glory.
Expressions of Love with no invitation
A practical human innovation-
