Denial brings more grief than it does favor
It promises pretty views and sweet smells
It smells like delectable treats and glows like a summer moon
Denial wants you enveloped and amused at possibilities

Invite your heart to play but bring your mind along, too
Find the space between what you can imagine and what is real
Hope for that which is kinder, softer, warmer
Pack a sweater in the likely event of chill

Denial will convince you otherwise
That you are somehow expressly connected to someone
That you are somehow entitled to a fair shake
That you may well be next in line for a grand scheme

Mind the curb, you don’t want to fall into the flow
Its only a few inches, but it offers a vantage point
You can see further down the line and when the unexpected is coming
You will be able to lean out of the line of fire and avoid the impact
