Let's not give up!

I could lead the charge and get us through it.
I might as well wait for a century.  
But, what you think is lost,
I want you to know
Was more air than I ever had 
To breathe.

This is my response to Trifecta's weekend challenge, which was to write 36 words which includes the words "charge," "century," and "lost."  Have a great weekend!

  3. I read this yesterday and left the window open to read again. Really a sensitive, reflective statement. You hear about love unrequited, love ignited, but the stepping back and letting the unresponsive love to do their part is a great reflection. I'm impressed you said so much in so little words.
