Continued Emergence

“The Act of Acting”

Take a look behind you

There stand the people

Who have not reached success

Nor degrees of acclaim

What poor bastards they be

Thinking they are burdened by life

While all the while

Remaining burdenless

The “what’s missing”: No audience offering applause

When life presents an opportunity, say yes or no

Either accept or decline

It’s your choice to make

No time for lingering

Earth continues to move

Chanced possibilities

Are rare without design

Preface each night’s rest with a page read

Then dream each dream in contemplation

Welcome tomorrow’s gospel

You’ve earned the good tidings

Enjoy the applause

Harvey Kalmenson
