i wish...i could free myself of borders,
those edges and lines that i put in
between things and people, thinking it
will keep my life manageable.
i wish I could be less afraid
to ask for what i want,
even if i know i won’t get it.
i wish i could dance in the rain,
walk along sharper edges,
go outside in the darkest part of night
and not care that i cannot see and
run and run and run anyway.
just let life...happen.
i wish i were as fearless as i sometimes pretend to be.
