All That Awaits

Updated on October 28, 2012

Are we to be ships

Always safe from the storm

Hidden in the tranquility of the harbor

No Challenge

No Danger

No Excitement

Or will we overcome that fear

set sail


And find all that awaits.

Are we to be stars

That never seem to burn

Hidden in the endless void of the nighttime sky

No Burning

No Fire

No Intensity

Or will we become a light

to shine


And discover all that awaits.

Are we to be birds

Remaining in the nest

Hidden from the pathways of the cool blue heavens

No Freedom

No Desire

No Adventure

Or will we return to flight

soar high


And discover all that awaits.

      My greatest hope is to "move" and inspire with my writing...hearts, minds and spirits...

      Very moving and caused me to ponder. I believe that our souls are who we really are. I like it when I cam able to let mine soar and ponder the unponderable at times.

      Excellent job.
