   Carpe

Walking on the firm ground of assurance;

Not traipsing on the high wire of your own.

Peeking through the peephole of conformity;

Not seeing through the picture window of individuality.

Touching the standard grey of mediocrity;

Not feeling the stark black or white of extremity.

Marching down the paved road of command;

Not strolling down the dirt path of choice.

Obeying the dogmatic drill of correctness;

Not heeding the sweet whisperings of conscience.

Waiting for the perfect time of schedule;

Not leaping for the chance of opportunity.

Diem
