Pas de Deux

pas de deux

what are you
going to do with your weeping
sitting there looking out
a window wondering
where the world has
gone?

rage against humanity (or)
brush aside the pain (or)
work ceaselessly (or)
cry eternally?

death is in the
anger
ignorance
exhaustion
wails.

what are you
going to become when
rage and ignorance and
exhaustion and wails
will not heal the
broken?

listen to the detestable (or)
ease the miserable (or)
work as enabled (or)
love incessantly?

life is in the
voice
charity
nurtured
loved.
