THE WHITE FLAG


I’m not giving up.


Don’t think I’m throwing in the towel

and lying down,

just because the flag I wave is white.


I’m just taking a break.


Weighing up my options,

sitting on the fence,

catching my breath.


Sometimes I need to think.


Which side am I on,

which path do I take?

Where am I going and how can I fight?


And sometimes I need to just be.


To gather my strength

and rally resources,

and give my tired brain a wee rest.


It’s not quitting, just pausing a bit.


So I’m waving a white flag,

not in surrender,

but just ‘til I find my agenda.


And then, I’ll be back in the race.
