there are no grace periods

14 Jan

there are no grace periods in this life

one day leads to another awkwardly

or sometimes they race into one another

with such force that

that I am left flat on my back knowing

I can never go back to the safety of the past

for there are no grace periods in this life

when responsibility is left suspended

and the laws of gravity are on holiday

there can be no preparation only a naked presence

courage and perseverance

poverty lies prone in the noonday sun

there are no grace periods in this life
