as one “grows up”

the hands of an environment accepted by most

come at your neck

gripping tight & digging those

nails in,

stealing your breath

stealing your life

stealing your ability to

play---

if you swim with the stream

the frustrations that come with age

may present themselves in a more

comfortable light

because you have so much company

amidst those who have

decided to swim that way.

 

remembering how to play

may in fact bring you out of the death

which captivates the comfortable

igniting a new way to live

where the little changes magnify

those depths of life which can smother if you let them.

 

just what will it take to make you enjoy life the way

you

want?

 

dancing in the early morning to the rising of the sun?

a swim in the coldest winter water despite all those

that might

frown upon it?

putting that pair of pants on with the other leg first,

driving a different path to work, having a different hot

beverage

while you slave away or

maybe just not going in at all---taking a well deserved

day off

to break up the monotony?

 

the ball is in your court.
