Challenging As a Way of Being

Accepting challenge as a path,

A way of being,

Challenge is a way

Of seeing

What to do and not to do;

What we are and what we’re not;

What to leave inside of us,

And what we ought

To put aside.

Personally,

I don’t like it –

Confrontational, disputative:

A fashion word, a word in fashion,

And I wish

They’d halt its use.

So be it.

Challenge is Obama’s word

And everybody else’s too.

I like Obama – not the herd.

As stimulant to intellect

It is

Okay. I guess.

And so, although

It has no ring,

Accepting challenge as a path,

An invitation, way of being,

I can write this poem.
