On the Futility of Revenge

La Maison d'Aneli  -Hamlet In Five Scenes III
On the Futility of Revenge
by Michael Doyle

Life it seems
Beyond its dreams
Is a transitory question
Best approached with hesitation

Careful of curtains hung
Equally as so with songs unsung
About the wrongs we wish to avenge
For such things bring their own revenge

Often these cut both ways
Bringing darkness to light of days
Often despite the points scored
Petty acts do not bring honor restored

Dueling has its dangers
For friends who've become strangers
The wrong intended for some poison all
Each feeling their backs against the wall

All good intents for life
Are lost when peace loses to strife
Would it have not been better to move on
Before all the good in life is gone
