Quote #814 - #GiveYourself

12 Mar, 2018


"To the wrongs that need resistance,
to the right that needs assistance,
to the future in the distance,
give yourselves.

Carrie Chapman Catt

It is as true in microcosm
as it is in macrocosm

If we are not for what is better
If we are not making things better
If we are not becoming better ourselves
Then what are we?

We may not be
are not ever
able to right all wrongs
able, even, to put a dent in some wrongs
and yet
we must do what we can

Some days
Some years
Some administrations
It feels like a drop in the bucket
And I grow disheartened

Some days
Some years
I know I am doing
what it is I can
for this world that I love
for this country I love
for the people I love
(including myself)
And it is enough

Well, no,
who am I kidding?
It is never enough
Can never be enough
But some days it suffices

Today it suffices
