Importunity Talks

"When opportunity doesn't knock, build a door" When possibilities don't arise, look for more When all you can do is build a bridge to connect the mountain peak to the ridge You find that strange and patient zen That comes from knowing why and knowing when When your blueprint for this thing called existence Meets with disapproval and resistance Remember the architect designed it as such All the way down to the final touch Opportunity and obstacle are kissing cousins Failure is not up for discussion Don't allow self-doubt to cause you concern These challenges are meant to help you discern What is right and what is true what to think and what to do So trust that quiet, retiring voice That says to you "Make this choice."

Great read, Trey. Making a choice that needs to be made OR to await for the choice so it can be made (I'm trying not to get t00ooo caught up in semantics here.): you speak with true wisdom. And your poem talks to me with that wise tone of a sage. "Failure is not up for discussion." Failure is merely a lesson. I love the tone of this, Trey. Trust and silence awaiting, giving it all, or allowing nature to take control. The blueprint isn't always the final draft. Multiple Reads recommended. W.
