Know When to Fold

What is right and what is wrong?

Do we even know this now?

Fingertips have so much there and yet nobody’s asking how

Years of light have passed of late, everything’s on different time

The world our youth is born unto is not the same as yours or mine

It may be hard to swim against a river’s current, flowing fast

But sea-worth captains setting sail know how to fasten their ship’s mast

Progress, yes, is good when guided – guided, navigated true

But progress lost, misguided, rushed – ends in darkness, me and you

Push on forward, through the pains

But know when you should pull your reins

For forlorn futures could have been won

If only you knew meaning: done
