steps23Last night, I dreamed of open paths

In the past, I didn’t even try to go down them

Because I believed they were closed to me

Even before I started – what I didn’t realize was

that I closed them myself with my thoughts

too old, too fat, too dumb

not rich, not celebrated, not 20 anymore

I’d stack those up them before I even started

This year, I’m blowing apart the barriers

I will take some risks, some leaps, some chances

They are my paths to take

and no one else’s

I will own them proudly

Wonder where they will take me?
