we are powerless

we like to preach on power,

but it’s a simple fact that there are things

over which we are powerless

nature, for example, and death.

we can talk until we are blue in the face

about empowerment and still always be

sideswiped by these overriding forces.

therefore, we must proceed in humility

working with these things,

not in spite of them,

learning to cope with their existence

in order to truly thrive.

the alternative, my friends, is 

a descent into madness.
