“Good Grief.”

You said it, Charlie Brown. Though all we get is grief, they only knock us down to topple our belief that one day, maybe soon, the meek will all inherit and Lucy change her tune. I don’t think they could bear it the way we do: to rise in failure and begin where we left off, unwise, knowing we’ll fall again. And in our darkest mood to still allow for Good.
