Image: A Jagged Horizon in the Distance (here)
The sun simmered red as it slunk towards the jagged horizon.
Feverishly fighting for time as the day turned progressively darker
Not about to indulge in any fancy footwork but just frowned
Contending of ways to save the day for things larger
How did it come to this, a question that kept playing in his mind
Not overly ambitious in his keeps nor expecting a finality of feelings
He reasoned to just keep seeing them as non-evasive and acting blind
Working instead on his defenses completely engrossed and waiting
Could someone else be made responsible to hold on to the stake
The rewards were aplenty for the patience and outright persistence
A question of not throwing away opportunities but to grab the cake
Lesson learnt reflecting on previous disappointments experienced
