Have you ever had the chance to be so happy
and all you have to do is cross the line and choose it
but then you get so terrified and you don’t even know by what
as if a happiness of that magnitude should be a crime
as if being happy in that way
is some sort of Armageddon and nothing follows,
so you should think carefully whether you are ready

and for the years to follow you go around in circles
wondering where the chance went
and thinking it could have been so simple
and there was no reason in the world to be so miserable
and it was just right there in your hands, so close

I triple-dare myself to not make that mistake a second time.

…T minus twelve days away from Paradise…
