One problem at a time.
One miss-step forgiven.
A snarl, a look, for
Which the cause is hidden.

Anger and frustration;
Don't they share the same sound?
The joy of achievement
When it's muffled and bound?

A negative outlook
May tell us a story
Of missions abandoned
No desire for glory?

An "I don't care" may mean
Something very different,
Like "what choice do I have?"
Or "that's irrelevant."

A perfectionist may
Be nothing more or less
Than someone who desires
To provide us the best.

So whenever we're inclined
To leave or to bicker,
It might be best to stop
And view the WHOLE picture.
