Will it matter?

Will it matter in a hundred years?
He often asked, in the face of
frustrations
anger
worry…

The question would make us pause 
And in the pause we could
think
reflect
evaluate…

Will it matter in a hundred years?
With that question we
set aside frustrations 
defused anger
let go of worry

Will it matter in a hundred years?
Will it matter?
Will it?

    Such wise words. I think we should consider these words when we feel angry, frustrated, or worried.
