Walk Outside


Walk outside

Through the door

Into the unknown

Into the silence


Uncharted sky

Desolate shore

Omnipotent Ocean

Uncertain moor


Step outside

Get out of my way

I can’t wait any longer

Hold my breath


Just get away

Shut the door

Forget the danger

Time to explore


Taste eternity

Chase tomorrow

    …forget the danger and just enjoy life… for danger is an inherent state or condition we cannot control… we can only avoid but the more we do so the more we engage our self to it… so better yet enjoy…. and live free… and trusting… smiles…

    forget the danger…there is risk in everything isnt there….and with it danger…i would much rather live in it than deny it and have it get me anyway….

    I like this. Forgetting that danger ‘inside’ and going forward into nature outside…and it is so invigorating, isn’t it, when one first steps OUTSIDE! Glad to see you here.

    Just be brave and with ‘time to explore” One would want to see what’s been the changes to one’s life after a while. It may help to create a relationship, perhaps! Nicely Alan!

    We would miss so much if we curled up to the danger that is life … it IS best to hold your breath and jump in with both feet and eyes wide open … wonderful poem! Spare form that has well chosen words and great placement …

    Yes there is always danger and sometimes we just can’t wait any longer–need to get out and try life!
