What makes life happen

 

Baked Chicken

 

How many days

Make up a lifetime 

How many dreams

To fill up a night

How many lies

To undo perfection 

How many second chances

To make things right

How many incidents

Of forgiveness

How many acts of charity

Does it take a person

To improve the human condition

How many random acts

Of philanthropy 

Given mankind’s 

Errant proclivity 

How many hindsights

Need be undone

For better or worse

Life is uncertain 

Each decision in a day

Is another deal done

How many triumphs or mistakes 

Define one’s existence

How many battles

Lost or won

To move heaven and earth

How many acts of contrition

Between you and me

It takes only one
