Comfortable Ways of Being Bold – Written Wednesday 11th April 2022 (Aged 47)

Comfortable Ways of Being Bold

every piece of life –
does feel like an adventure
but these days –
i join a queue of people –
hoping to be acknowledged –
for their anxiety
maybe coping mechanisms
need some form of liberty
i can feel the change –
and i do accept it
i accept it as a begrudging friend
and i know,
i must use a different lens
do not let me turn into –
one of those people –
for whom the world can never bend
it’s just… i don’t know, right now
my capacity for adventure feels rusty
i have either become too comfortable –
or just too scared
and i know i must find windows
and take in the view out there
every piece of life –
does feel like an adventure
but as the years queue up –
outside my door
mingling with my varied memories
and hanging onto my flaws
but i just feel like i am slightly dull
i need to find hopeful views
and comfortable ways of being bold
