Of gaining plates

Sometimes you step up

to a plate

and rule that world

for a second or more

But then

when not all is said

and few is done

you have to step back down

And realize

this is not your world

It’s just terrain you get to gain

and loose

in a negotiation

with doubt


hope or lack of it


and drought

Just so you can

gain ground

and enter other limelight

But not hold

that particular

stage for too long

it’s not yours

know when to step down

know when to hold

your smile straight

when to curve it up

as when to curve it down

right on time
