Begin Again

Since the world is going to hell right now anyway,
what is the point of getting up again,
and doing it again,
and again,
and again,
and again?

The answer comes:
There is always a point
in doing what you can
for good.

Why would compassion anger?
Sweetness and love are small things.
Begin again.
