I'm trying to live in the present
Does my disappointment
prove the effort futile?

If this ache subdues
desire to take up the cross
(the only one I can call mine)
and continue to walk

if I am left with only will
only raw volition at my beck

what then?

Choose to place
one foot before the other

do the dishes
wash the laundry
love the little boy who is my charge

and leave chasing to those
who have the strength
to pursue
