People used to tell me
not to do what’s on my mind
warning me about
ambiguous things
like
“the risk is too big”
or “the price is too high”
or “something might go wrong”
or “you might not make it.”

Now their arguments
are reduced to
“not everyone might survive”
“give them a chance”
“other people might get hurt”
with their tentative footfalls
and their voices trembling
.

barbwire
