Best not

by joetwo

Best not to do it

To not take the risk

To avoid the chance of failure

The horrific visage of the defeated

*

Best not to ask

You might not get an answer you want

Or maybe you will

And then what?

*

Best not to go

Things are different there

New and unfamiliar

More to learn and lose

*

Best not to listen

You never know what you will hear

What has been heard is seldom erased

The continual assault of memory

*

Best not to see

For there is a lot in the world to look at

Demanding a closer viewing

And if you do that, what will happen next?

*

Best not to anyway

There is always a chance of harm, of bad

But always the chance of good too

And that is what makes it best to do.
