AVA 13 What must we do

people are too eager —
their hopes, their anxieties
echo, what must we do?

half-hearted, remember
to wonder — what must we do?
we are seeds, separate.

carry on regardless –
change, reflect, open: become
ready to share a self.

take time to inquire –
hold fast to change, re-inspire:
seek the common good.

prepare: face the question —
what must we do now?
commit to something new.
