Facing A Challenge


When faced with a challenge
We swiftly want to flee
From making a decision
To move or cop a plea.

Is it better to go with it or wait
As life quickly passes by
Or better to hesitate
Bewailing our fate, not try?

Deciding to move ahead or not
Making a list of cons and pros
Helps make it easier to discern
Keeping us on our toes.

So, if we go or if we stay
Is not really wrong or right
It is simply a matter of choice,
Of fight or flight in hindsight

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
