All Things Considered

Not only is “all things considered”

just so impossible to achieve,

it is, definitely, ill-advised.

I have said this and have been sincere;

but, if I’m honest, the considered

is a narrow field of self-interest.

It’s difficult to stay “objective”,

and not influenced by moving on

with my needs and wants, the considered.

I now realize one thing considered

is desirable and doable

and most importantly well-advised.

Often, “what” must be done overwhelms

the myopia of considered

and distracts from doing the wholesome.

“Who”, needs the care, should be my focus,

making the center of attention

my neighbor for action considered.
