Taking Stock?


It’s that time of year

And that time of life.



Time to take stock,

To sum up.

Was my life well spent?

Did I make a difference?


My better voices say

You don’t need to do this.

Your life has been a collective effort.

Does measurement have meaning

If you want to change the world?


Enya sings

“Is there a road I should follow,

A sign I should know”

She sings about getting back

The love she lost.


I don’t  have a lost love.

I have friends I love.

Together we have let go —

Unmoored and committed.
