One More

Take it all off
Take a dip into uncertainty
Where my toes don’t touch the bottom
One more splash of cool confidence

Stars laced with freezer burn
Guide tattering fingertips
Overflowing with hope —
One more slip with fate

Rolling sweat beads
Stoke my passion’s fire
Another day at the grind
One more glimpse of glory

Taste my bounty
In the wake of goodness
I lick the spoon bare —
One more pinch of wisdom

My future footsteps
are in a vulnerable state
My destiny newly recovered
One more slap to the brain

One more look
One more doubt
One more push
One more bite

One more forgiving chance
