    Succumb

    What spills when life knocks you down?
    Wouldn’t we rather have it be
    Joy
    Peace
    Love
    Gentleness
    Kindness?
    And we hope and we dream,
    But when we’ve been rattled,
    It’s so much easier to succumb to
    Anger
    Fear
    Cursing
    Yelling.
    What do we strive for?
    And is it stronger than what we succumb to?
