the year of lyrics: a poetry project

my search for inner-peace, one poem at a time

Day 5 – Ten

Leave a comment

One: one look is really all it takes
Two: two times I breathe and fill my lungs
Three: three times I blink, so my eyes can adjust
Four: four times my mind spins in circles
Five: five times my heart beats, flips out of control
Six: six times my foot taps on the ground in anticipation
Seven: seven beads of sweat fall from my brow
Eight: eight steps forward
Nine: nine stumbles back
Ten: ten times I second guess myself, but never look back
