A Hole-in-the-wall

His final paycheck covered
only one month's rent on
a vacancy where he began to
sell only hard to find things
from the tiny hole-in-the-wall

Curious customers stopped in
to buy a little this some of that
responding to his wide smile
tempting items - helping voice
about purchases at fair prices

Sales brought a wider variety
requiring added store space
revealing his secret - customers
keep finding and buying things
at their beloved hole-in-the-wall

Often we must take the risk to jump in and try something we really want to do. Whether it be roaming the world or putting all our money into a curiousity shop we should always follow our hearts and do the things we long to do. We don't get a second life to try it again...
