DO-OVERS DONE
(3/6/14)


here
you are
again

after wobbling
to and fro
like a top
losing momentum
you have somehow
managed
to rattle
to rest
at your starting
point

eventually
you have
to buck up
and cope
with the consequences
of your decisions

by yourself

you should not
expect
those around you
to continually
suffer
your doubts
and regrets
each time
that you panic
and choose
to go back
to the beginning

while
they support
you
financially

emotionally

you stutter
step
in so many
directions
at once

asking for advice

but never
taking it

then complaining
about your lack
of opportunities

you seem
a crisis
of commitment
personified

your death
will come
as quite
the remorseful
surprise
