Aren’t we all a little afraid
of admitting the truth?
Maybe we have no idea why we are doing what we are doing.
Maybe we should have said what was on our mind.
Maybe the second option should have been our first.
Maybe we should start over.
Maybe tomorrow won’t be the way we pictured it to be.
We think about it all the time.
All this stuff.
And it keeps us awake.
It makes us spend hours trying to gaze into the future.
Trying to make sense of the uncertainty.
Trying to eliminate the risk.
Trying to draw up a plan of some kind.
Trying to make a list of rules to follow.
Trying to come up with a formula to succeed.
And then, all of a sudden,
We feel at ease.
Because we think that we’ve cracked that secret code.
The one that can set things right.
The one that is the key to that door that we’ve
been trying to open for what seems like forever.
The one that we think is perfect in every way.
But maybe we’re wrong.
Because things might take a totally different turn.
Life as always has other plans.
Was making that plan a waste of time?
Or were those questions that we asked ourselves a lie?
What then, is the best way to live?
I have no idea, I have to admit.
I am a little afraid.
And that is the truth.
But then, aren’t we all?
But what if we follow our heart in the end?
Maybe we could fly.
And yes it’s true, we could fall.
But it’s the possibility that we need to look at.
And win against all the doubts.
Be brave enough to make that choice.
Speak your mind.
Move to a new city.
Embrace the flawed decisions that you may have made.
Because no matter what,
It’s never too late
we’re all a little afraid.
