Almost a ballerina
A musician
I almost became a writer
Almost done
Almost there
Almost got it
And I almost caught that fish
There have been days I almost died
Days I was almost on time
Almost late
Almost finished it
Almost started it
Almost told him everything
Almost loved
I was almost a law student
Almost a barbaric
Almost homeless
Almost lost forever in the jungle
I was almost bitten by poisonous serpents
I have almost been content forever
Almost sadden however
I almost fell in the well
Almost lived in hell
Almost saw behind the veil
I almost touched it
My fingers almost tingling with anticipation
I almost spoke with them
They were right there
I almost knew it all
It was almost, almost there
That I realized: almost is the farthest you get from there.
