Indifference

The Indifference virtue

is not one of passivity

but rather of activity.

Conventional wisdom says

Indifference is lethargic

with apathy and doubtfulness.

Epiphanic wisdom says

Indifference is energetic

with listening and non-judgment.

Ironically, Indifference

realizes proper submission

and grateful poverty of spirit.

Heartily, Indifference

forges a blessed discernment

and graced responsibility.
