Theory of the Undaunted – Poem by Ali Grimshaw

hold spontaneity in one hand
hold courage in the other

after hesitation kisses you goodbye
jump into your future

let possibility
fully fill your lungs

float untethered, without
holding your breath

until the shore
disrobes the fog

then swim with the passion
of another year
you never thought
you would have.

  1. This is such an incredible invitation to allow love to lead and swim in the ocean of possibility! I’m including it in Forgiving Fridays, Ali, with a description of your year of “openness” and asking the question, What if I only had one life to live? Thank you for including me on your Facebook post, I’m honored and blessed.

    Love and Light to you Ali. Keep shinin’ and take one more step in love. Reminds me of a Rumi quote “As you start to walk on the way, the way appears.”

    1. Breathe and keep on writing. Writing helps me process emotion and move forward.
      I am grateful to have others that share poems and read mine as well.
      Have a beautiful day.
