Less Than Clear

Starting over sometimes
seems to be the best course
though there’s often no time
to return to the source
where you’d only rediscover
the joys of discovery
I guess that’s why we have
this thing we call memory

Even if you’re thinking
that you’ve seen it all
it’s important to get up
after every fall
each song contains the seeds
of a new verse
if we keep singing
we’ll make the devil curse

from pleasant surprises
to dire certainties
what keeps us going
are the possibilities
never over til it’s over
even then it’s unclear
if it’s an ending, or a beginning
that we really fear.
