Good Or Done - Poem by Stephen Bennett
Which is better... to be good or done?
Done is the special quality
of rest after quitting,
with all judgment for now suspended.
Good takes a part of this, but
the excluding of bad
leaves the large and small terrors out
that make a story or bind a lesson,
a laughter, a record, whatever
holds everything that really happened, in place.
Being done is reflective of what
you did, felt and saw: things
to review and relive in you're sitting.
And then begin something new to be good
or done. Soon again to see
the choosing and being of each one.
