i knew it would be hard but
you never know until the day comes.
looking in between this fence
sign reads- “Just Settle”
i can’t find the courage to settle for something less than magical.
i’ve seen the highs of the hills and the clouds below
just wouldn’t understand.
snow ball fights and ski lodges
on the other side of the fence.
would you, settle? honestly?
take a seat and willingly accept
that this new source of feeling is- can be- something
and place it down and walk away-
a day like today-
a little bit of Summer and hazing desert,
the something new is around the corn-
i’ll never want to stop climbing that mountain
where the fences aren’t high
and the Summer holds their chase.
will look down one day at those in Summer-
wondering why we struggled to stay put
or i’ll stand on this side of the fence
a protester without a sign
and just a bit of magical incentive
and a story about a mountain.
