Poem: Don’t forget

Dear M.,

Today is soon.

Don’t forget,
why you’re here.

You’ve slipped,
but not fallen.

Keep your focus.

Know what’s important.

It’s going to be
a long journey.

Don’t forget,
why you’re traveling.

Don’t forget,
the purpose of the steps.

Don’t forget,
what’s at the end.

What’s at the end,
what’s really there,
that’s important,
focus on that.

Today is soon.

It’s just the beginning.

Don’t forget.



Poem: Soon is coming

Dear M,

Soon is coming
something is starting
remember why it’s important.

It’s not for the reasons
that are at the front.

It’s for something more
that although
intellectually described
is much more than that.

It’s for something
that means more
than these words
could ever describe.

Soon is coming.

Be focused.
