the sense of duties owed


obligations we feel
of actions that need doing,
the sense of duties owed,
prices to be paid
for moments we’re allowed,
for callings that need to be answered,

I like to have checked-off item after item
for I know the list ever grows,
and there is no way anyone
can meet the challenge the checklists give us.
