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
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.
