It's amazing how clear things become, like waking up and realizing you have been asleep.

One Chance

The world, as we know it, is drab
cloaked in grey
and beige
a sepia tone of what could be
lost of vibrant waves of love
and change
and passion
and soul
Killed off by the need for political correctness
and prudent ways
starved for romance
and joy
In the name of social restraint
keeping your cool
is not the solution
to keeping your soul alive.

Do you dare
to follow your heart
into an uncertain future?
I'd like to meet the man
who knows
exactly where his life will go
every step of the way.
Our footing is never guaranteed
We are never promised anything
Life can cease
without a moment's notice
and never a day too soon.

Our only choice is technicolor dreams
and actions filled with the flavor of our soul
there is no other way
Do you dare to live out loud?

    Beautiful prose, may you continue to paint pictures with your mind.
