We tend to inertia.

 We tend to inertia,
a curious feature in a species
so dedicated to evolution;
personal and political,
spiritual and sociological.
We read the books and
listen to the podcasts,
share our deep and insightful voices,
happy to illustrate the should-do and
the ought-to-have
while changing nothing at all.
Full of sound and fury signifying nothing
yet we still wonder why
we aren’t feeling
all better by now.
But that would require a change,
an alteration of course beyond the inputs,
some conviction and effort beyond
the vocalization of sincere platitudes,
a challenging road
that’s difficult to start on because
we tend to inertia.

I like writing. Words help me unpack my thoughts so things can start to make sense. Once I have both myself and the universe figured out, I plan to take up macrame. "Writing is an exploration. You start from nothing, and learn as you go." E. L. Doctorow


  1. Starting something can be difficult
    we tend to be lazy and seek pleasure
    we would prefer to be entertained
    instead of accomplishment in our leisure
    in fact, we can know the value of a man
    by its fruits, we can make the measure
    because those men that take action
    are the ones who can claim the treasure.
