Based on: poemcrazy, by Author Susan G. Wooldridge – Chapter 10
My real name is pensive.
Never a still mind
My thoughts race to find the truth
Is there such a thing?
Yesterday my name was hopeless.
No one can help,
No one will try.
Money ruins life.
Today my name is maybe: yes and no.
If I can help it I will make it.
I will try to fight; stay alive.
This money which I lack
Tomorrow my name will be struggle.
I need support and encouragement.
I need the things I can’t find.
Mostly, I want true love.
But will it hurt?
Secretly, I know my name is fearful hesitation.
Standing at the top of life’s waterfall
Rapids and sharp rocks lie beneath me.
Should I jump?
Failure lives atop this cruel mountain peak.
Success can only be found in the fearless leap.
