There is always the urge to 
take a dictionary and define,
to set out the structure and meaning
in clear (or not) succinct words
and if one could use little symbols and squiggles to add meaning
so much the better.

And, yet, does that explain 
or clarify why we act as we do?
Can Webster tell why caring 
feels like a hardship
Why we feel burdened 
when we should feel blessed? 
Why we struggle to accept 
that which is or should be a joy?
