THE SMALLEST OF TRIGGERS

I hate how I feel

Although common it seems

Having been once again 

What I swore I’d not be

 

Yes, despite all the talks

That I’ve had with myself

Making promises to

Put the past on the shelf

 

Asking Heaven to help me

And forming a plan

Putting forth my best effort

To do all I can

 

But so quickly it seems

To unravel and fray

As I learn once again

What I learn everyday

 

That small problems are made

A full universe bigger

If you won’t stop what starts

With the smallest of triggers

 

…Jeff Bresee
