Poetry is a clear window into the heart. I often write to express the thoughts and emotions inside me--not knowing what will appear on the page but invariably discovering more about myself and the world around me.

Born to Make a Difference

Posted Wednesday, June 01, 2011

I'm scared
Did I do this?
Did I leave myself vulnerable?
Wasn't this what I wanted?

I took the leap
I left safety
Now I'm out on the ocean
Wondering when I'm gonna hit shore
Or if I ever will

It's like they say:
Sink or swim
Well, I'm swimming

Isn't this what we dream about? 
As kids? 
As adults? 
Living a wild adventure 
Discovering our calling 
Making an impact on the world 

I want you to join me
Try out this way of living
Beyond safety
Beyond financial security
Beyond knowing
How it will turn out

'Cause you can't know anyway

Join me
In this life
Full of adventure
Full of excitement
With bubbling fear
But joy
Deep joy
