REDEFINE

By Peter Slack 2/18/2008


A loss for words

But the words do break…

Through the fog of memory lost

Dripping with confidence

Weeping in fear.

I reflect on what was…

But will not be…

I ponder to what could be.

Fear to commit

Fearful of failure.

What will be que sera, sera.

How did I ever think

That life was predictable?

Relax, react, refresh, reflect

Reinvent… redefine.

Words rediscovered
