Healthy dose
Of
Responsibility

Tempered
By
A bit of
Levity

Compassion
And kindness
Light the
Way

Many of
Our
Ills

Ragtag Daily Prompt – Respect

When Things Snowball

A single snowflake
floats innocently down

Joining others
to form a snowball

snowdrifts amass

Their collective weight
an avalanche making

Engulfing justice
in a furious blaze of white

But a single branch
of self-interest

Left
poking through
