A Lake of Agency

Like Ripples in Water

He chooses

she chooses

they choose

even it chooses

all ripples in the water

waves make trouble 

splashing each other

The lake itself would wish to be calm

and will make waves of its own

to negate them all

Even the sky

with hale and rain

make a mess of the water

the choices in array

Let one in the water

who says the lake isn't fair

open their eyes

to the ripples around

caring enough to take 

just a moment 

to forgive all the ripples,

and those who make them

for they too curse

the ripples that made 

them bother you.
