Further

I will go
so much further
than anyone I know.

For love.
For duty.
For hope.

My bare minimum
is better than most
best efforts and I am
not trying to brag,
that’s just the truth.

Are you sincere?
For that matter,
am I?

I don’t spend nearly
enough time thinking
about that and maybe
it is time to start.

Am I vulnerable?
Of course.
More than most but
better at hiding it
from all but a
select few people.

But I have courage, too.
I can get by with much
less than I require somehow
while always believing that
someday soon everything
I want will come my way.

I will go
so much further
than anyone I know.

For love.
For duty.
For hope.
