this time i did not try to escape reality

i immersed myself in it

i ran head on into my fears

this time

instead of running into a wall

disabling me

making me forget who i am

i found who i am

and found relief

i learned that walls don’t prevent you

you can free fall right through them

into a new dimension..

and might i mention

this wasn’t the first time i had done this

as a child

i had no walls to construct

because fear was challenged everyday as i grew

a leap into the pool without anything to keep me afloat

was a leap of faith in myself

now i’ve remembered walls are not concrete

they are illusive

constructed of fear and doubt

you can let yourself out

by pushing

and not pulling

 

just push through life

be apart of reality

don’t resist

don’t pull away

just be

then there are no walls to run into

and you are free

with love comes the fear of losing it

but fear is meant to be challenged

you may struggle

but being able to appreciate what is without imagining yourself without is worth the fight

memories and the future only seem better

when you don’t feel the love that surrounds you now

there is always something great to discover

once you learn to love and appreciate the beauty of a moment

even if it doesn’t last

 

sunsets and all the things we wish to remember – g.c.
