~ Poetry by me ~



Face up to your fear
Look inside
Take your time
Open the gates of your mind.

You know
you are a leaf in the wind
Blown hither and thither
Dancing down in the dust,
Reeling away,
Torn by the gale.

As you are
A bubble of foam bound to burst
Bobbing between sea and air
Windy vastness above,
Deeper darkness below,
Drowned by the waves.

But you know
That the only way
To live and to die
Is to embrace it.
