Careful calculations are often myth,
you'll have to show up to find out if it's hit or miss.
But the miss that makes you wish to be home
once you've arrived and read the tone
can still be a stepping stone
for something grand, far down the road.
So when sneaks in that sensation you hate,
an undesired mental state,
for when the night is over you can't wait;
At least tomorrow you can create
a poem from it to demonstrate
that a payoff already is underway.
