Begin

What if I told you this was everything?
Every secret that stuck to your tongue,
Was all for this?
All your falling
All your flying
All your firecracker crying
All your saying
"Now is not the time."
You don't have to begin
By getting it right.
But dare to begin
What needs to be done.

And when you're sitting in the thick of it,
Second thoughts holding doors for the third.
Quicksand and Apathy
To be anything but perfect
The fear that stalls you before you can start
The theory of gravity.
You don't have to begin
By getting it right.
But dare to begin
What needs to be done.
