Finding Grace

If there is a gentler way out of this
Let me find it
Allow me to discover grace
Compassion for them, me, those I barely know
Let it not be so oblique
Simplicity is out there somewhere
I know it is
Pray for that
But, oh, how fulfilling it would be to
Fight back
To say, what a prick!
To be wide eyed with thunder and rage and violent intensity
Provide a schoolyard lesson
Say all the clever things
To take immense satisfaction in
Doing the wrong thing
And be left smaller for it
It's out there somewhere
I know it is
Let me find it
In all its beauty
