Things are beginning to look up,
A few false starts,
a couple of U-turns
and we are finally headed in the right direction.
We were often brash and arrogant,
false in our assumptions
that our way was the only right way to go,
we got lost
as we struggled to right our leaky boat,
lashing out at the gods,
and often at each other,
we sat back on our heels
and gave up the fight.
So let the sails loose,
wait on the wind and changing tide
to gently guide us home.
