Facing/Avoiding

The brain tells to avoid
and the universe reminds
patience almost destroyed
the nth time that I resigned

What if I take action
because we live only once
or prepare for extraction
so I’ll not look like a dunce

One more heavy deep breath
should I stay or should I go
doubt creeping like he’s Death
final decision is no

The brain tells to avoid
and the universe reminds
into the crowd I joined
the action I leave behind Ω

Notes to Self III

“Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.”

— Benjamin Franklin (1738) / Thomas Fuller  (1727)[1]

In the “Notes to Self” series, I write down words my mind and heart should fully remember.

If you have been following The Dispatch for quite a while, you may have noticed that I cheated a bit on make a chronological Notes to Self. But that’s OK. This is my blog anyway. (Though I do need to cook something new. Hashtag Yes.)
