Stop over-thinking

You don’t want to climb the mountains
but you want to kiss the peaks
you’re aiming for the islands
but you’re scared of the sea.

You want to reach the horizon
but you’re fearful of the sky
you’re falling to your insecurities
because you’re too scared to fly.

You don’t know what lies ahead
and you’re afraid of all this load
you want to carry your dreams
but you can’t see the road.

You want to find diamonds
but you won’t look around
you want to plant your victories
but you won’t touch the ground.

You want to win the marathon
but you refuse to run
you want to embrace the light
but you’re afraid of the sun.

You want to see the rainbow
but you don’t like the rain
you want to be strong
but you can’t stand the pain.

You’re dreaming day and night
but you’re still asleep
you want to win so badly
but you aren’t taking that leap.

Love,
you won’t get anywhere
if you stand still like a stone
it’s about time
you come out of your comfort zone.
Yes…
you will fail
and fall
and crash
and burn
but that’s alright
because now it’s your turn
don’t be afraid of a little bruise
how will you ever caress victory
if you’re afraid to lose
today may not make sense
but it all adds up to you
this is all a part of life
so stop over-thinking
and do what you have to do

  1. Here it is: “Love,
you won’t get anywhere 
if you stand still like a stone…”

    I knew if I kept reading I’d find the message. Lovely poem.

  2. I love this.
    One of the things I really want to learn to do is stop living in my head and start living in my body. Not sure if it’ll ever happen, but hey, maybe 🙂
    Love, light and glitter
