– this cannot be in vain –

My right to walk away…

into a sea of flames,

my right to give up something

stable like a redwood tree,

my choice to test the waves…

on a land quite man-made,

my choice to become greater

than the loop I’ve made for me, so

take… each… breath

… and

push… my… self

~

Nothing is set in stone, and

never am I alone, de-

cision is the new religion

I should embrace, and it

cannot be in vain

… no, it

will not be vain.
