Steadfast And Yet Relaxed

We don't know our own strength
The toll we take
From toes, legs, torso
Abdo, throat, face

The whole framework overstrained
Over-paced behavior
Whole array misshapen
Til it erodes away

Slowly frayed, flayed daily
From greed and shame
We retain
Each bait we proceed to take

Facebook, tweets, dm's
Social media snakes
Can leave a cheap
Fleeting remark a screen away

Harming the cohesion
Our weave like yarn texture
Our coat of arms tears apart
Like polyester

Mustn't fester
Over the sorry folly of others
The effort to judge
Is much easier than to serve

So rest assured
And set forth the steps towards
Your bettering incrementally
Beckon those against that course.
