A Squirrel's Self-Confidence
By Don Iannone

Thinking only of more food for himself,
venturing too far on a razor thin branch,
the greedy squirrel slips and tumbles to the ground,
With only his goal in mind,
unswayed by his last fall,
the food-obsessed squirrel starts over,
This time he makes it.
Clinging to the madly rocking birdfeeder,
My bushy tailed friend happily chuckles,
The squirrel is my teacher this morning.
I should not worry so much
about slipping on the ice of self-doubt in my life.
