this is not a poem..


i'm not going to forget the war
i couldn't - even if i tried
the tv stays on
i still want to know what's happening
but i don't need to hear the same story again and again
see the same images twenty times a day

i only have this much time and energy
and there are other things
things that i've been neglecting
people i need to see
books i want to read
love i like to make

my spirit isn't crushed
but i need to work on this frustration
optimism and patience
not giving up
little things, first steps
oh yeah, the law of karma..

The Law of Karma?

the theory or principle that everything happening in the world becomes a cause and condition for other things to happen. that what we do, say or even think today, will lead to the happiness or misery of ourselves and others in the future..

yes i think that's the right attitude:
staying informed but not letting this war take over our whole life.
