Something Borrowed

My grandmother often advised
“no need to borrow trouble.”

My grandmother-in-law warned
“you don’t need to look for trouble
because it will find you,”
which seems a better fit
with my own experience
with actively soliciting trouble,

Disempowering investments
purchased at lowest ego-cost
for discounted risky value,
or borrowed,
when too broke to buy
and too disempowered
to even hope for owning
what cannot be virtuously purchased,
free of trouble,
cooperatively empowered–
like healthy relationships
and resonant communications
and bicameral political well-being.

I hope it is also true,
as I might share with my grandchild,
“you need not hope to individually own
or merely borrow
any discounted empowerment,
because positive powers will find you.”

With the current national Republican leadership
borrowing
and purchasing,
heavily investing in political neglect of public health care,
mental health care,
personal and public
bicameral imbalance,
climate fragility
dissonant across all divided hemispheres,

The troubling opposite
of restorative peace and justice,
new green economic and ecological win/win strategies
for global energy democracy and beauty,
for nutritional resonance and resilience,

I might at least hope
future generations,
including my grandchild,
look in a wealthier
more ego/ecotherapeutic direction
for borrowing
and cooperatively investing
in co-empowerment.
