Chin Up, Eyes Forward

don’t despair
chin up, no, higher
you can’t catch what you want
when your eyes follow the earth.
when the melody is playing
and the concert stage set
when you screw up, keep playing!
and fake your way through error.
Practice later.
don’t be afraid
memories engraved
all things end
perhaps just around the bend
don’t stop walking
don’t quit going
time won’t start slowing.
remember without regret
it was you who started out this way
it was you who made the turns
who took the roundabout way
so skyward! Upward, keep your eyes
peeled for that odd, falling star
and make a wish when it comes
your goal is not that far.
