Will Worth

It better be worth it.

Whatever it is you have to say now
it better be damned good.
You’ve been silent for so long,
so however you want to break the streak,
if it’s not memorable,
if it’s not golden,
it’ll be…
words fail.

It better be worth it,
what you come up with
after all this time.
It better have earned the extended delay
you took to produce it.
If it’s stupid or awkward
or if you crack in the delivery,
it’ll be wrecked.
It’ll be shameful.
It’ll be something less than what you wanted.

Make sure it’s right,
what you try to say next.
Be careful.
Don’t fuck it up.
No pressure.
