I wonder where I’m going
I wonder where I’ll get to
I wonder what my stone might say
in the graveyard when it’s all through.
I’m frightened of aloneness
I’m frightened of mediocrity
I’m frightened my true essence
will stay locked up tight in me.
I want to be expansive
I want to glimmer with bright light
I want to shed the bullshit and
stop worrying if it’s right.
And so I take each moment
that’s here in front of me
I close my eyes, I lean close in
and choose how I want to be.
My breath can slow and settle
My eyes then can widen bright
My wonder worry wanting
are all fleeting, like my fright.
Because I am already here
Exactly where I need to be
I am indeed extraodinary
By simply being — and being me.
