Damage

We look at car crashes and just wonder if everyone is okay.
We don’t stop to assess the damage.
Or come home to a yelling parent about the twisted scrap of metal
that saved your life. We mess up
a project, relationship. Make a mistake.
We get left to dread the consequences.
But can’t we just stop, just worry
and hope everyone will be okay.
It’s not the damage that matters.
