Almost, are we nearly there?

Hiking with all our gear

ensures my mind loops, are we near?


Did you get the job

or pass that exam?

Almost is not so good


“Almost” seems not quite finished

one of those nebulous words

like ‘nice’ and ‘okay’


With 2017 almost finished

time to pause and reflect

just what in 2018 we expect!


When honest ‘almost’ doesn’t cut it

don’t compromise yourself

let go and move on, you deserve the best
