I wanted to share this poem with you from Martha Baird. its called "do not make it too easy."

DO NOT MAKE THINGS TOO EASY

By Martha Baird

Do not make things too easy.

There are rocks and abysses in the mind

As well as meadows.

There are things knotty and hard: intractable.

Do not talk to me of love and understanding.

I am sick of blandishments.

I want the rock to be met by a rock.

If I am vile, and behave hideously,

Do not tell me it was just a misunderstanding.
