When The Fall-Out Settles

When the fall-out settles
Who will want to remember, all the Old Battles
Who will want to remember, all
the Glorious wins and scores,
The crushing
defeats and despairing draws?

 

When the fall-out settles
Who will want to remember,
the exact details
Of all, that was said and done,
The wasted time, that’s gone,
And remain consumed, by that yet to come?


When the fall-out settles
Who will want to remember, the reason,
For holding all those silly,
lapsed grudges
And the origin, for the inflamed retaliation,
Behind
all the futile, pushing and shoving?

 

When the fall-out settles
What
will be remembered, with want,
Is all that
actually, really mattered
Time spent doing things, well-meant,
With others and in places, worth-knowing

Engaged in the full-moment
Giving instead of taking
Listening instead of talking
Being instead of wanting

When the fall-out, finally settles,
Let’s just hope, it’s not all too late…
