be strong, little Jedi

There’s no master
plan, young Padawan, though I long for
days there
used to be.

There are but
wars of small convenience
big pictures rendered
meaningless when
pieced together.

Better worlds are
treasonous
for there’s no shortage
of genius to
mend what ails.

Where we fail’s not in
ideals or
ambition
but a uniform will,
and therefore
we considered
attrition above beauty,

in derelict duty to
our domain.

You may think
the worst, little Jedi
but I am not resigned to
your fate, love,

only to my own.

Never let the
fight inside you
step aside, be washed from your bones.

Be strong, little Jedi,
the dark side has
made itself
at home.
