Resolve to Amend

I tend to want to fix

what’s wrong,

of course, the problem is

what I see amiss.

While dysfunction

suits me well,

disordered affections

must be resolved.

Grateful consolation


me, makes me different,

and I’ll never be the same.

Accepting desolation


the prescripted fit

with a measured response.

Indifference to outcomes


the working order

to include all.

Yielding to restoration


my responsibility

to the greater good.

I face shortcomings,

embrace pardon,

and exercise freedom –

I resolve to amend.

Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
