Life is full of momentum built up over time.
It accumulates quickly when we’re at our best
At creating whatever we most think about.
It may seem that it’s best to hold on to one’s doubt.
Yet, our readiness comes at our true heart’s behest.
When I choose to be ready, I get off the dime.
Having fallen from high, and with parachute none,
What advice would one give me, should I ask for some?
One might say, “Just hang on. It will be over soon,
And your soul may just vacate before flesh is strewn
On the pavement.” I can’t easily overcome
What I’ve built up before me… before the long run.
I can dare to be ready to be ready for
The momentum I make in my meek-minded maze
By allowing each moment to see the next through
To the next, and the next, until each now is new.
I am here for the run of life – eager, always,
To be ready for more journey, forever more.
