Never Far Away

In route,
hot pursuit;
     a traffic stop,
     a coffee shop,
     then the unexpected:
          "I let my guard down
          for a split second
          and was attacked
          by a damn goon!"

New mindset,
a self check;
     danger set – at arms stretch;
          it's never far away;
               always pray …
               to return home,
               each and every day.
