Cost Reward

The tree must be downed
for the board to be milled
If the steak is to be eaten
the cow must be killed

The footstep that’s been taken
can’t be gotten back
The word that’s been spoken
is on the attack

Once the bullet is fired
the blood surely flows
The consequence of decision
comes with the wearing of clothes

When the mind has decided
it tends to stand firm
lest another is willing
to face down the squirm

If positions are taken
they will only be changed
if both sides are open
to have thought rearranged

Once the concrete is poured
the hardening starts
but the opportunity called change
comes with the beating of hearts.
