What To Do?

What To Do?

Many who deserve good things in life
do not get their due.
The world is as it is.
The facts of history you cannot undo.
In a glass, we see our simple path,
but will those in control allow us through?
Will the verdict be,
your foot does not fit the shoe?
Resigned, like a stoic,
must we shrug our shoulders,
sadly say, what to do?

We may meet in the market place,
buy fruit from a distant farm.
All is well for an afternoon,
and no one can come to harm.
But how bad it can be, we always knew,
so we shrug our shoulders,
sadly say, what to do?

When you know how the world works,
what is left on the shore by the tides,
that you cannot follow to where the swallow flew,
there is strength in acceptance,
as you hear yourself say, what to do?
