Ours Is Not To Reason Why

(On the other hand, why can’t I single space these lines???)

Your body has its reasons.

Your heart.

Your mind.

Your enemies.

Your children.

Your teachers.

Your animals.

Your friends.

Your parents.

Your partner.

Your politicians.

Your preachers.

Your poets.

Your predators.

Even the earth has its reasons.

Even the grass and the rats.

Even the faith you no longer believe in.

Love will have its way with you, for reasons

you may never fully understand. Reason is

a better passenger than Captain. Enjoy the journey.

Wherever you land is home.
