6/10/16 A poem comparing then and now

I throw myself

forward,

upward

d

o

w

n

 

I throw myself 

anywhere.

It doesn't matter where

or what happens

when I land

because I know I'll deal

wIth the outcome

without fear. 

 

This is how it used to be. 

I was reckless. 

I didn't care because I didn't fear. 

 

Now there is you

to think of. 

 

You and you and you and you. 

You care. 

You fear. 

You worry. 

You wait. 

For me.

 

You think about me. 

You need me. 

You want me. 

You rely on me. 

 

This is different. 

I can't do what I used to. 

I can't be what I used to. 

 

I must care

and plan

and be careful. 

 

For you.
