no. 112

advice to self

when having a crisis of faith

and of character

meditate

contemplate

reflect on the transience

of all things living

and already expired

clarity?

confidence of conscience?

conundrum of conviction?

or

is there nothing

fraught with naught but

the thought

that the indecision

brought about by

years

both too many and too few

to make a mistake

in that moment

just stand still

and find comfort

in the fallibility

and the imperfection

the knowledge that

others have tried

and

succeeded

and tried

and failed

and still move forward

into the unknown
