One More Terrible Truth
The daring take chances because it is their choice.
The shy take chances because there is no other.
The failing take chances because there is no hope.
The failed take chances because there is nothing but.
But why do people dream
that people can stand up there without taking a chance?
That people don’t have to die
To learn one more terrible truth
and struggle to stand up
and shake off the dust and the blood and
stare at the enemy with burning eyes
“Now it’s your turn.”
