"They say that right before you die, your life flashes before your eyes. Make it worth watching."

Why walk down the path when I know where it leads,
just following the path of forgotten old beads.
I know what will happen if I go there again,
who know when I finally should come to the end.
So I'll put my foot down along with the rest,
and learn to venture away from the nest.
This really is it and I'm now free to go,
this moment is long awaited I know.
Cast away from that safe harbor but wait,
behind my path please close off the gate.

So this is a really personal one for me. In fact, there are two other ones that you can find by me that string from this topic. I love how expressive you can be when it comes to poetry. I find that I write my best work when I am really upset, or just have a lot of raw emotions to let go. It can be so much easier to let my anger out on paper than through words. So I've finally sailed away from the safe place that I knew so well, and Lord willing, I'll find another peaceful harbor to call my own.
