I Don'T Think So

Am I here once again,
To suffer through another round of...
Dodge the ball and duck from bows and arrows.
And be quick!
With a nimbleness of a rehearsing youth.

Am I here once again,
To minimize...
My anguish and tears to have them bared,
As if on call...
To fall.

Am I here once again,
To suffer through another round of...
On my knees.
On my back,
To adapt...
With a crawling again to stand tall,
Again.

Am I here once again,
To do that?
I
Don't
Think so.
There are boulders where I had before,
Leaned to rest and catch my breath.

Am I here once again,
To do that?
I
Don't
Think so.
But I'm not 'spiritually' oppose to show...
I could do that if I wished and I chose.
But I,
Don't
Think so.

Am I here once again,
To suffer through another round of...
Dodge the ball and duck from bows and arrows.
And be quick!
With a nimbleness of a rehearsing youth.
I could do that if I wished,
And I chose with a doing it.
But I,
Don't
Think so.

Could I want to if I chose?
I don't think so.
Could I do it just to show?
I don't think so.
To do it and be exposed?
I don't think so.
No I don''t think so.

Could I want to if I chose?
No I don't think so.
And could I do it just to show?
No I don't think so.
To do it and be exposed?
No I don't think so.
No I don''t think so.
