Take the High Ground

When you feel most low;

When those who matter disappoint.

When the pull to

strike back is strongest.

That’s the time

to take a deep breath

and speak from history.

From what we’ve built together;

From where we want to go.

Don’t let hurt destroy

not just the past,

but the future.

  1. Hi Harry,, ..back in Berlin! A very good time with Katrin’s folks. Say, your poem spooked me – either someone close abandoned you or general or sage words fit many right now. In either case sure hope you are doing well. Will give you a call later. Shortly off for a root canal and then a new crown. Must be an old hockey injury. I’m the meantime take good care!! bob
