Heads and Tails

old fundamentals, but periodic revue helps me.

Of Course, being born
is a death sentence.
Of course, the odds are against mattering
very much to very many.
Of course, the meanness is a mystery
and the unfairness awful.
Of course, the horror is unspeakable.
Of course, we deserve the wrath of God.

BUT REMEMBER . . .being born
is a life sentence.
Remember, you will matter much
to a precious few.
Remember, beauty and love

are mysteries, too, miracles
that negate the pain,
miracles that lift us into
the undeserved mercy of God.
