Judgement Temporarily Abandoned.

 We are propelled
by our needs
and our instincts,
and if the beast
should occasionally arise,
we should simply
ride it to exhaustion
and question not from
whence it came.

We are granted
only so many years
to flaunt and taunt,
to pick and choose,
to devour or sour,
to savor misbehavior,
to laugh and weep,
to purge and sleep.

When it is all over,
then we will know
what purpose
we have served,
and all of our
minor in-discrepancies
and flaws will
matter little.
It is our love,
and our forgiveness
that will be weighed
over all the rest.
