There are always reasons
To not care.
To be selfish.
To resist a necessary change.
To not give your best
To hold back your truth
To not give to the poor
To choose to be dissatisfied.
There are always reasons that are
By definition, very reasonable.
Reasons why you should be let off the hook
Or why you are exempt from accountability
And COVID is just a current favorite.
There will be more good reasons to come.
Reasons to hold back
To do less
To do nothing.
That’s what makes choosing to do better now,
That much more valuable.
