Poetry by Adam

The Path of Most Resistance 

The path of most resistance

A desperate insistence to be

And to have and to hold

Boldly going where only a few have gone before

Because that is the essence

The inherent wisdom

The very meaning of life itself

A willingness to say No!

I will go my own way

I will take this path instead

And if I fail

There is worse than being dead

I could never have attempted

To live

To love

Or to simply exist

And that would be worse in every way

Worse than all the slings and arrows

Worse than all the sticks and stones

My biggest regret

Would be to have never tried

Never attempted life in the way I saw fit

Never seen if I could fail more spectacularly

Than any come before

Because without the shadow of abject failure

How could you hope for pure victory

How could you hope for adoring adulation

How could you hope to even exist

How could you hope
