reminder to be gentle
     towards myself
today of all days, when I weigh my errors and find them heavy
the past, meaning the way-way back
speaks a little louder the second week of June
I’ve managed it, well, thanks
old enough to measure life in decades
there are one hundred random conclusions
     yet it boils down to, probably two which are solid
so I count my lessons learned
realize self grace does not come easy or without a few laughs
and march on, because I can
also, what else would I do?
