Now or Never: a poem

Home S&S Expressions Now or Never: a poem

Should I say it now
With reckless speech but essential speed?
The morrow so distant,
The tides ever-changing.
What if “when the time is right” never comes?
If only it was at one o’clock,
If only time should stop
At the culminating second.
To direct or to inform,
But never allow to forget.
Or should I wait forever?
Tame my tongue,
Master my disposition,
Can mind control nature?
If it be facile,
I would live in solitude,
I would never falter.
But all i could fare –
Lower my head and lessen my stare.
