Desperate Actions

Feeling cut throat
desperate to care for me
angry at my inability.
No more time
to hear others
say be patient.
I’m jockeying for
better position
without even knowing
which way is forward.

Re-engaging faith
disconnecting me
I seek the Greater’s
counsel and authority.

Soon, my actions
don’t feel so desperate
to me, and in fact
gel with
the big picture nicely.

Movement after prolonged inaction
can often seem revolutionary
instead of simply
about time.
