(February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)


We MUST nurture,
And ALLOW ourselves to grow.
Knowing obstacles may shelter defeat...
They did not arrive for us to cordially greet them!
Vindication stops they are.
Not vacation drops to manifest our pain!
Although stumbling to our knees,
Releases us to bare public scrutiny.
Freezing our steps in guilt...
Agonized with doubt!
Shouting in despair gains no applaused,
Or awed reactions captured and replayed on video!
We MUST nurture,
And ALLOW ourselves to grow.
Doing so prevents mental block clock watching failure...
Free of boundaries limited by time.
Rewinding again and again.
Just to prove it has been done...
Loses momentum and a bored audience,
Looking for the significance of replayed actions!
