Something to wave
in other people’s faces? Or
is it more of a flag
to pack away
only for yourself?

Could it be what your heart
was made to do?
Or what you are bound to dread?

Do you select something
others will be proud of?
Something to bring home
the bacon, or a cause for
extra stress?

How many chances
do you get? And how long
until you know if you were right?
