Comfortable pattern

How difficult is change?


When life is a

comfortable pattern

and habits are the

set of routines

that anchor and secure life,

change is troublesome.


Even in the midst

of the dysfunctional,

or the unhappy,

it is difficult to

turn the sails

against the wind

and move another way,

when the shape

of living has been

so firmly set.


Nearly anything,

even cruelty,

can be accepted

to preserve life’s

comfortable routines,

and even in the

face of suffering

there is the rhythm

of the day.
