My front windshield is cracked,
has been for several months now.
Every now and again,
I have the money to fix it,
but end up spending the cash
on something else.
Yes, yes, we only have so many resources
I feel this a metaphor for something:
The world’s problems are vast and consuming,
and we can spend all our days chasing
after all kinds of things,
that seem good and productive at the time;
or, we can spend time fixing the windshields
of our lives.
Ah, yes. I can see clearly now.
The crack is gone.
