Disjointed Thoughts Of A July Afternoon - Poem by Kathryn Gardiner

Don't worry about the future
It has not been determined
Or bogged down, like the present
In laws of probability and likelihood
You can shape it.
Don't fail at something
Before you've tried
By assuming that it's impossible
Don't disregard a love
Don't sweep it away into a pile of forgotten dreams
And lost chances
Just because it occured at a rather unfortunate time
Or with the wrong person.
Keep it with you, at the back of your mind
Until times change
Don't hold back your feelings
However inappropriate
Nothing ever came
Of keeping it to yourself.
