You Only Write Once


One year, five months and six days.

the question remains: will she stay?


Will she choose all her dreams and travel and roam?

Or will she side with her family, her friends and her home?


Will she stay for her brother- who needs her for sure?

Or ignore all his pleas and the loneliness he'll endure?


Will she get on that plane and soar straight to the sun?

Or be faithful to the place where her dreams first begun?


Will she make this decision based on what they say is smart?

Or will she embrace this last chance and follow her heart?
