You have but one chance

to make your ‘it’ happen

other chances may occur

but they will not be the same

the main chance

main time

your time

the harder part

is to not let anybody

tell you

that this

is not so

no matter what the ‘thing’ is

that you know to be true


must do it

& then let it be


if you hesitate

let another

say wait

until tomorrow

your ‘thing’


be gone


to be the same

what this bravery


is the pain

in tending your solitary furrow

taking the long way home

being you

against the wisdom

the take

of the crowd
