Tempering Our Haste to Change
By Don Iannone

The world is what it is.
What we make of it
is what really matters.
Leads me to say: Not a thing different
than what already is.
It's all perfect...
in its own imperfect way.
Too often, we fight what is,
and end up wanting things,
which make us suffer
even more than we would,
than if we simply came to terms
with ourselves and what is.

I also believe that the world is what we make it.

at times inequality bothers me... otherwise I have no regrets on having such a perfect world with its own imperfection...

My thanks to each and every one of you for your kind comments.

May you each find the temperment that brings healing to your karma. We all need a good karmic shower at times.
