poem: Balance

I prefer not to engage,
as I sit behind my screen,
in the cacophony of voices
that constantly compete online,
promulgating self assertion,
rather than discussion.

So, I wait patiently,
rather than join the fray,
until my voice is lifted,
first to Heaven for revision,
before making its way to the page.

Does anyone, including myself, consider
that words carry weight into posterity,
ultimately to be reviewed by the judge,
when the ledgers are drawn on our account?
