The Possibilities



We are told to believe
that when one thing becomes impossible,
other possibilities will rise up from behind it
and be revealed.

Obviously, this isn't always so.
Some denials are absolute,
and there is nothing in existence
to refocus or redirect one past them.

If we wait for a new thing or a next thing,
we wait for death.
Instead, at these times,
we must change ourselves

in order to change everything.
Anything else, anything less, will fail.
