for things un-said, un-done
for opportunities missed through ignorance or fear
for the short sightedness of those blinded by hate or greed
for the narrow-mindedness of those who claim enlightenment
and for those who suffer despite their innocence
May we not act in haste and REGRET even more
We who choose to surround ourselves with lives more temporary than our own, live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached.
Unable to accept its awful gaps, we still would live no other way. We cherish memory as the only certain immortality.
The Once Again Prince – Irving Townsend
