Theory of the Undaunted

hold spontaneity in one hand
hold courage in the other

after hesitation kisses you goodbye
free fall 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. Love your poem, Ali! Fear is what can stop us from making use of our full potential. Especially living in such uncertain times like now. We are stronger than we think. Thanks for sharing and inspiring 😀 Aiva
