The Moment is Now

Whoa now!
Don’t settle too quickly
Opportunity is about to knock

What’s that you say?
You’re not ready.
All this work you’ve been doing
all these seeds you’ve been planting
Really? You’re not ready.

Too late
the door is open
and you will have to contend
with possibility, and I warn you,
it will not arrive alone

For success is certain
to stir adolescent reaction –
inappropriate entitlement

Oh, you say you’ll keep it simple
but emotions are organic
and the tea is spilling –
complexity a given

So, stop with the excuses
Breathe and pace yourself
This is your moment
Embrace it accordingly.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.
