Listlessly turning about the normal pole
Hiding behind and living a role
Watching others and keeping score
Safety is deadly for the soul.
Change and a lack of security
Is frightening but enlightening.
Growth is a legacy yet extracts a toll,
Growing toward an integrated whole
Requires letting go of society's expectations
Being seen as an aberration, weird, too strange...
Others will demand that you re-arrange.
Don't go back!
Life is always forward!
Step out of the shadows.
Step into the light,
As sure as the sun rises after the night
and the seed that was buried, seeks daylight,
Risk equals growth and life.
