How could we ever forget that one moment?

#95031 2 years, 4 months ago
How could we ever forget that one moment?
When it all changed
And it became real
After all caution was abandoned.

Where would we be now?
If we didn't take that plunge
Make that wager
And face that fear.

Would it be possible?
For our parallel lives to cross
And we could stare into
The path not taken.

Should we look back?
Not in doubt, but reflection
Not in judgment, but assessment
Not in regret, but wonder.

We are the collection of seemingly unrelated experiences
Stitched together with threads of uncertainty and angst
Our security is only based on the impossible courage
That we marshal to take an unlikely chance.

Very impressive, whoever wrote it.
"Got any nails?"
"No!"
"Got any flies?"

Thanks, I try to write one thing every day. Sometimes it's iambic pentameter, sometimes it's a grocery list. Appreciate you taking a minute to read it

I really appreciate you posting it, and am sure that others did as well! I'm just a grateful reader, but there are a number of wonderful poets and writers here in the forum. You might want to check out the Art thread and the Poet's Corner thread (currently both on p. 2), there are originals posted in both (including a brilliant one from Paige last night). Anything you'd like to share would be very welcome!!
