Don’t we all?


We all have our targets

in life

things we want to accomplish

at times the targets blur

clouded from our sights

by indecision



or more pressing priorities

that hem us in

but sooner or later

they reappear

and we re-awaken

once again

to something stirring



like the child to reach out

for what is just beyond

and not quite yet

in our grasp

then we remember to breath again

and our sight clears

rejuvenated from such

a stagnant apneaic pause

and we begin shooting

slow and steady

breathing as we fire

with each round spent

we are freeing ourselves

from the doubt,

the stagnating indecision

the inaction

calm and firing

all that came before

merely practice

until that bullet

hits it target

and day light shines

back at us

through the bull’s eye mark
