“RESIGNATION TO LIFE.” a poem, The Last Day of September, 2019 (Monday)
I do not know what life is, and I accept I never will.
Whether there is or isn’t “God,” we’re here, so I think we still,
Could try to do something that (maybe) could be counted good.
Perhaps, it’s OK to be overzealous or maybe no one could,
Ever be too zealous, IF you’re trying to do “What’s Right.”
Sometimes that means being peaceful; sometimes, putting up a fight.
So you MIGHT, as has been suggested, continue to do the best you can,
Just like Dear St. Francis, who must have been quite the man,
To have written this prayer, a wondrous affirmation.
It may be worth memorizing,
Especially when you go on vacation.

where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
