Don’t count me out ~

Sleep comes less easily
As time approaches
Worries set in

Fear becomes
Something entirely
Different

So many things
I would take back
I would change

Already happened
Already too late

As I come to the end
Of this neverending chapter
I know how I want it to end

But my wants no longer
Seem to match my needs

And so I acquiesce…

Because it’s the only choice
Ive been given

The only thing
Left for me to do

And while I may be down
I am most certainly not out

Not in life
Nor in death

I will see my way
Across this bridge

And take what awaits
On the other side

What is rightfully mine
Always will be

And has been all along

    A wise an ancient Greek philosopher once said “If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice”.

    Or it may have been Geddy Lee, I’m not sure.

    Either way, we re-frame choices we’ve decided not to make in many unhealthy ways. Destiny, fate, serendipity; all synonyms for the surrender of personal accountability and free will.

    I figured you were having surgery of some kind, by pics on Instagram. I do hope all went well, I’m a little anxious to see you posting again. 🙂 Go get what you want, because yes you DO deserve it. I hope to do the same one day. Best wishes.
