Resolve to Amend (next day repost)

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

changes

me, makes me different,

and I’ll never be the same.

Accepting desolation

alters

the prescripted fit

with a measured response.

Indifference to outcomes

adjusts

the working order

to include all.

Yielding to restoration

modifies

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
