Last Chance Saloon

Time is ticking away
Sixty minutes until my doom
An expanse of blank whiteness
Stretches before me
Failure is not an option

Usually I’m such a quitter
But not here, not now
This is too important
The last chance
The final achievement

It’s difficult to believe
It’s been a whole year
Week in, week out
Relentless and unending
But now I’m here

How many others
Can say they’ve seen this through
Taken every opportunity
Accepted every challenge
Like I have

The pressure is building
I can’t let myself down
But here it is
My fifty-second entry
Complete and ready to go
