"To live would be an awfully big adventure."

I remember a girl who was scared to live 

Insecurity ate at her soul 

The only thing keeping her alive were her dreams 

Inside she kept a secret key 

And each night when it became too hard to breathe she’d disappear 

Living like her reality was something greater 

One day she became a woman and faced her deepest fears, she watched them start to fall away

Determined, she decided it was time for an adventure 

But life took a sharp turn and burned what could have been in front of her

She cried in a way she’d never cried before

Wishing death upon her weary heart 

Because now all she wants is to run 

Instead the universe refuses to set her free.

I can identify with much of what you say Jordyn.

I keep telling myself to ignore my age, and to live;
to do what I love in life, rather than be ruled by self-doubt.

Sometimes Life can place you in shackles, Jordyn. But eventually they wear down & freedom comes like a breath of fresh air. Brilliantly written, as always 🌈

"when the forest burns along the trails, like Gods eyes in my headlights, when dogs are looking for their bones, and it is raining ice picks on your steel shores, I'm going to break, I'm going to break my, I'm going to break my rusty cage and run!" Johny Cash.
