Poem By Tony Jolley

No foregone conclusions
No faites accomplis
No ducking of decisions
No get-out-of-jail-frees;
No rocks or even hard places
No devils or deep blue seas
No copper-bottomed promises
No gilt-edged guarantees;
No time for fence-sitting
No more ‘wait and see’
No reason to do nothing
No room for apathy;
No moment like this moment
No better opportunity
No time but the present
No other certainty.

excellent message written clearly without any pretension...fantastic piece
Bravo! Concise and to the point and I think I know where you're coming from. A decision to get on with life so... good for you! (Your situation inspired 'Chessboard' so I was a bit miffed when I saw that only part of it had taken! Now restored to full version!)
Quite explicit and passionate poetry! A 10.
I really like this Tony...... should I? HG; -) xx
