Life, Maybe

Life, Maybe

My life is more than empty hours to fill,
And calls me to become more than I am;
To reach for stars with passion, faith, and skill,
A crusade greater than a tinker's damn.
Yet, walking such a path without a guide,
Seems far beyond the talents I possess.
To journey on with nowhere I can hide,
Go forward on a hunch or on a guess,
Takes courage I'm uncertain that I own,
And asks me to abandon common sense.
To leap into the arms of the unknown,
Means leaving safety here upon the fence.
My heart tells me I need to act bravely,
And then I'll learn to live my life, maybe…

One can get sore from always sitting on the fence.
