Introspection is not protection,
Life doesn't come with directions.
Navigating life without a safety net,
Risk and courage or just fret.
Push the boundary of what has been,
Explore new places and dive right in.
One big jump and plunge in deep,
All resistance begins to seep.
Life to live and love to grow,
Humble self, make self low.
Pride prevents being known,
Projects a garish clown.
Exposure softens all that’s hard,
Heart revealed, all it's broken shards.
Put back together in new way,
Be thankful for another breath today.
