On The Shelf Of Myself.

Updated on April 17, 2017

Escape from Within

On the shelf of myself!

Ensconced within

our inner

dwelling places

we squat on the

shelf of ourself

Huddled like

dusty knic-nacs

afraid of falling

and breaking,

fragile with

glazed eyes

tightly closed

we remain

shut off from

the world.

But fortunately

some of the joy

and the music of life

often seeps through

the cracks

in our veneer

and move us

to take broader steps

outside of ourselves.

To peek out of the

keyholes of our eyes

in amazement at

what we are

missing while

we were so

wrapped up

in our brain cells

of regrets.

So we take

the time to

turn back the

locks against pain

and to tiptoe bravely

into the vast

plains of possibilities

and wallow

in the world

only to come

away unstained.

Nothing prevents

us from doing this

for that door

to your inner self,

seldom locks and is

always open for retreat.

So go boldy into

the face of life,

laughing and dancing

at it's many missteps

and you will balance

always on the edge

of delight amidst

the madness.
