complacency is not an option
just because we dodged that first bullet
doesn’t mean it was the last
and if you’ve been paying attention
it wasn’t even really the first

a door to the future opened a long time ago
and we’ve been vacillating about whether to go through ever since
but the fear of confronting our past has been holding us back
and now that fear has metastasized among our ranks

threatening all hope

so now we face a challenge greater than any we’ve ever encountered before
we have no real past model to use as a guide for moving forward
we have no current system capable of handling all possible obstacles and/or failures
no way of knowing what to expect

we stand naked
all we have is all we are
it must be enough

complacency is not an option
