Is It Spring Yet? | Poem


how much are we willing to suffer thru western medicine ways
is there hope
or only the suffering to prolong a suffering life?
and who among us is not suffering life
in all it's joys and sorrows
seeking some way to evolve
to less sorrow -- more joy
it is in the moment we "do what we will"
and in the passing pray
"we have harmed no one"
and pray the "will"
is spelled
