Mere Joy

Mere joy

the choice not to despair;

to answer dis-ease with ease

(or, at least, grace)

hope for hopelessness

light for dark

something for nothing

being for not-being

Simple and easy

when measured

by chaos or


Complicated, sometimes,

by circumstance or pride

or fear, or carelessness

The choosing,

so often so much more important

than the choice
