Sisters and Brothers of the Misbegotten


A possible world is outside for the taking

The limits we impose

Internal or external

We ourselves must dispose

The problems we face

Much of what we choose

The valuable lessons we learn

Even when we lose

Pure of heart

Stillness of mind

Open the doors of opportunity

Close the misfortunate ones behind

We are creatures of habit

What we think and what we do

The cycle of our mistakes

Are often not thought through

The expectation is repeated

An outcome is skewed in this way

The beliefs we give into

The beliefs we betray

The family of humanity

Sisters and brothers of the misbegotten

Remember to care for the heart

And that what is most forgotten

Of this I can tell you

Put life into the possibility you see

Consider what is positive

Consider what is folly
