A Finger Breadth Away


Catapulted contrivance
The thing is getting it done
Its like I'll only get a taste of what is meant to become
Careful planning
Trying to make intentions fit into one
As if we're aggregating apples and the limit's a ton
Turn inhibitions to dust
Can ambition shine bright?
Only making a move exactly when the time's right
As we look in hindsight
There's oppression
Not knowing if it's Satan or just the Lord teaching lessons
The blessing's in the pressing so I couldn't lose the faith
In pursuit of our goals
They're just a finger breath away

by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
