16 TONS

Every day, every hour, every minute,

I could save a life or bear witness to end it.

At the crossroads of joy and despair

there’s imminent danger and subliminal care.

The faces I never see

yet life experiences engulf me to whatever degree

that is possible in a fleeting moment

and unforgiving unless I own it.

I must always choose to respond first

which is a blessing as well as a curse.

Taken lightly the battle is never won

but too heavily, it’s 16 tons……
