Worry and strife
  never really leave

They just change
  direction and form

When one plant’s watered
  another wilts

Your heart no longer safe
  once torn

Trouble that’s papered
  over with wealth

Set fire
  by money and fame

Is a sadness you try
  so hard to lose

Hiding re-armored
  —and waits to reclaim

(Villanova Pennsylvania: September, 2018)
