Before I close my eyes tonight i contemplate
Do I want to unpublish my work on Amazon
That I worked so hard for
Do I stop going to school when I think I’ll fail
No, I work harder
Am I ashamed of my experience?
Afraid of fame?
Cautious and protective of my life?
Yes, yes, yes…
Before I close my eyes
I look forward to a new sun rise
only looking back to correct the present
