Retiring

I have never been retiring

Shy sometimes
Lazy even
Fearful before courage comes

But never retiring
Even in that brief year
When I was technically retired.

The prophet Jeremiah
Spent much of his life
At the bottom of a well
I have been much luckier.

Speak now
Silence does not equal
Peace.
