Places

Made a commitment to try something that scares me everyday. On this day it is poetry.

Feel free to point and laugh, I can take it. However, I may still punch you in the nose, but you won’t know till you try me.

Read on at your own risk.

There are those high places
Spaces that pierce the clouds
Where the storms in a moment might sweep
But glory looms in your wake
Risk it you may
Fear it you might
Whatever you do, do with all of you
Don’t look back at the steps you leave
Only drown in the majesty
And fall drunk with delight

Visit you must
Must you visit me?
Only if true
Only if free

There are those low places
Spaces that sink far beneath the seas
Where the light is low and the shadows play
These haunts proclaim you to stay
Play with me
Why won’t you remain?
If you should swim in these places
Beware of doubts that creep
They will demand that you give in
To own you they seek to be

Visit you must
Must you visit me?
Only if true
Only if free
