Motivation for 2021

Of Bruised Knees and Rose-tinted Glasses

I wish I were younger
so I had more time
to make mistakes.

By now,
I should
know better,
do better,
live better.

There's no time to fall,
get up,
and try again.

Yet I dust off my bruised knees,
straighten my rose-tinted glasses
and inch forward.

No one gets it right
on their first try.
It's time I gave myself
a second chance,
or a third,
or a fourth.
Cos the truth is,
if I don't,
then no one else will.
