We All Fail

Some Thoughts on a Change of Plans

Sometimes, love fails because of cowardice.

(It’s not for the faint of heart.)

Often, promises are broken because they are forgotten,

or deemed unimportant.

We make them so easily.

We break them so readily,

flippantly,

impatiently.

We are seldom held to account.

If called-out, we respond in anger,

accuse the betrayed of pettiness

and lacking a life.

Often, life fails because love fails,

because we all fail.

Sometimes.
