Ethan Seever is my newest private writing student. He shows great promise and this piece gives a glimpse of some of his thought currents.
Is It Too Late?
Here is the time where we find out we're men
when we can break a heart but not bend
and when we come finally to understand
that when your heart breaks its not the end
though you feel the blow down real low
and it feels like you should curl up and know
it is time to go but
take it slow.
Don’t get caught up in the moment
just like my Pops said
“guard your heart”
don’t give way to sin
because in the end you never win.
Why did I choose
not to listen to him
and because of my choice I did not bend.
Guess I’m not a real man
but I understand now from this end.
Is it too late to go back to then
before all this crap caused by my sin?
Can I go back and make sure I win
avoid making the same mistake again
but I’m prone to sin so how can
I ever win?
