Poetry by Robert Stone: Doing yet enough

2012-07-01 - City flag over Burkesville Street, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener.
Doing yet enough
- a sonnet of choosing rightly
Some love the new too much and some the old.
Do not despise the tattered, torn, and frayed
that speak for those who fearing hurt yet bold
proved they of sacrifice were unafraid.

Some choose the easy way and some the hard.
Do not deride the never finished frills
that story tell of those who have been scarred
yet will not lose the loves of early thrills.

Some take the gentle path and some the rough.
Do not condemn the steady, slow, and sure
that say through those who doing yet enough
avoid excess and triumph will endure.

Some thoughtless grasp the hard won hope that frees,
ignoring all responsibilities.

- Robert Stone, 1 July 2012
