I have an active imagination
not an accurate representation
of reality. It seems to me
that when I rush in head on
I am very rarely dead on
in my resulting interpretation.
When I live with expectations
or preconceived stipulations
I find myself sold short
in a rather bold sort of false hope
an unsecure rope unable to support
or hold up in any situation.
Left dangling in my hesitation
bereft of necessary examination
I only see the more or the less
never before, only after this
and even when doing my very best
I pay the price for exaggeration.
