We pretend we know
That this is not a dress rehearsal
But do we really?
Embrace the mundane
Choose to make it extraordinary?
Awash with colour, with vibrancy
Do we truly
Submit to the moment
Of Enchantment?
Can we sustain
Ride the pain?
With surrender
Embrace the pleasure
Without guilt, in-built?
Place the most precious
Take the leap
Freefall into the light
The want of zone comfort
The rigid box of beliefs
Facing the hidden terrors
Breaking the boundaries
Stepping, sure-footedly
Into the realm

What if? What if?
You have a precious gift
To lift,
With stakes high
And nothing to lose
The choice to fly
Where nothing matters
To escalate to
To resonate to
The place
The time
The space
Of One?

Stop worrying about the landing
Just take the leap
For each moment, each heartbeat
- Every breath
Sing your song of sweet surrender
To that which calls out your name

Remember your depth and breadth
Stand tall, true and defiant
Caress the different textures
Serenade in varying tongues
You have both rhythm and time
Take the leap - it's sublime

Nice and direct Walrus. It insinuates, then punches one's crust.

Thanks Ellie... one of those that tripped off the pen in a flight of fancy... or was it reality?

Thanks Walrus - a poetic kick up the arse!!!

'Freefall into the light' particularly lifted me.

Thanks Bobo, wrote it in a moment when I was in danger of losing sight. As my good friend Fearless would say, "Freedom doesn't mean you have to walk alone".
