SELF JOY AND WONDER

December 04, 2023  •  Leave a Comment

There was a time when I didn’t sense the danger

I didn’t double check or seem to care

about the what ifs of

jumping on a motorcycle

pushing myself to the front of a crowd

or diving deep into the ocean

 

I know that part of me is still within

My eyes widen and my skin erupts

When I notice the chance

To take a chance

 

But I have tucked it away

Behind daily chores

Beneath well-made beds

And in the aisle of the local grocery store

 

And I miss the carefree part of me

that is disconnected from common sense calculations

and familial obligations

And attached instead

to self-joy and wonder
