Structures of Past Lessons

A warming breeze removed the crust
Of ice and snow that long buried our hope
and need for responsibility.
Yet mounds remained, memorials to diversions,
Short lived yet pleasurable.

Daunting challenges before us set this world apart from the other
But in some alternate universe, challenges bring joy
Made as puzzles, to be solved.

Time sets in before me now and the end of time looms large and stark
No more opportunities, then, for choosing the good, the true, the lovely.
Has there ever been a time I chose the good?
Are the structures of past lessons so constraining
That I really never choose at all?

No, it can’t be- I don’t accept a determined universe.
I’ve hope my thoughts are mine, my will …to serve
