    when I was a teen
    I used to have this dream
    over and over again that
    I couldn't get to where I was supposed to be
    in time
    I was late and I missed it
    school
    or in the years since then
    whatever
    point is I didn't get there and I
    lost my chance and
    the certainty that I would never get
    another one
    scared me to the depths of my soul
    that I should die in vain
    and not fulfill the mission
    for which I came
    is a thought that
    screams and
    screams and
    screams
    its eerie familiarity
    startles me with
    its clarity
    maybe the
    rhythm of some other lifetime
    is the drumbeat that
    forms the back drop of my mind
    it must be
    what keeps me from sleep
    what makes me
    too serious and deep
    it has to be why
    I always worry about wasting time
    don't forget
    won't forget
    never forget
    please
    don't let it be
    too late

    In my little time on this earth I've learned that it's never too late for anything as long as you have breath to breathe.

    Pursue and live in peace.
