Action and reaction

Conscious, thoughtful work

The bedrock of action, easily ignored

By the mind, at times a suffocating smog

Poisonous fumes percolating to every cell

Weaken every shred of sinew

Reaction is swift but blind

Nature and innocent suffer

It’s hard to act, easy to react

Balanced is easily tipped

When clouds threaten to bury happiness alive

Thoughtless and reckless react

But the watchful and patient act
