>Getting Late

by Brendan Strong

>It’s getting (too) late
to change my ways
to relive days (gone by).

It’s getting (too) easy
to carry on again
doing the same things again
and again and again and again
and expect a (different) result

I’m getting (too) drunk
on Friday and Saturday and Sunday and
(even) Wednesday nights
to really make a difference to someone

Someone who (really) made a difference
to me
in me

But thinking about it
is the (inevitable) first step
to step out of parentheses
and put into (real) practice
to do

What I fear it may be
getting too late to do
