All The Things That Matter

Our trivia we line up well,
With that we show command —
But all the things that matter, seems
We cannot understand.
 
How strange, but how predictable,
To think that we’re so smart,
But never comprehend a thing
With matters of the heart.
 
Regret becomes our atmosphere,
Chagrin becomes our fate —
And all the things that matter, turn
To things we know
 
Too late
 


 
Silent in the meadow,
Sun betwines with shadow;
Part of every feeling,
Staying, coping, dealing —
 
Everything has scattered:
Hearts in all directions,
Tears that bear inspections,
All the things
 
That mattered
