The Flip of a Coin


Which do you show today, heads or tails calls you away

Heads for pride, hold your confidence and strength

Tails for cries, fake your confidence and lie

The child feigns, but only needs to learn

The teenager tries, but can only yearn

The man flies, it’s finally his turn

The elder cries, on a downturn
