Now or never

Always ask for pardon,
Sorry works better than please,
Ask and you will receive
A maybe.
Do and be damned,
But at least its done.
The world divides
Between those who do
And those who ask.

Always look forward
And never look back
Dont wait for lots wife
She's gone off track.

The world will belong
To those on song
Join the doers and rushers
Avoid the penpusher.

Do it now
Do it quick
Enbrace regrets
For all we did.

Better tears for efforts made
Than regrets for nothing done.

If you wait
For the blessing
From all around
The train will leave
Chatting on a wasted platform
Another wasted chat
What might have been
Had we the guts
And the single mind.

Oh yes,
In years to come
We can forgive
And be forgiven.

If we get across the river
Deep and dangerous
And live to tell the tale
To hushed crowds
Who kiss our human feet
Willing to forget
That we once shared
Their uncertainty.
