darkness creeps into
my heart
like the fog.
suddenly it is there,
quietly trying to
envelope me.
" i will not do darkness
today " i reply.
there is no sunshine 
to bolster my resolve.
the new england grey
is incessant.
the rain dampens my
" i will not do darkness
today" i reply again.
the words of The Dali Lama
ring in my ear.
" today i am fortunate
to be alive, i have a precious 
human life, i am not going to waste it.
