I Fear A Life Not Lived


I fear

A Life Not Lived

(to the fullest)


that I will have chosen

the Comfortable Cage of


in exchange for the

wild and 

untamed Unknown


unable to let go of 


I will settle into

Good Enough &

Playing it Safe

will become my 



Trading for 

trinkets of 

Acceptance & Security 

the Pearl of 

True Freedom

I will swindle myself


I am so afraid

that I will come to 

the end

only to find out 

it was the 

mud pies in the slums

I had chosen 

over the 

Holiday at the Sea.
