unafraid ...

be every bit 
of who you are. 
to live a life 
that says
"i am unafraid."

don't wait ...

don't wait until someone walks away from you 
to realize how much you want that person in your life, 
how much you need that person in your life, 
or the extent that you are willing to go to 
to keep that person in your life. 
because sometimes when people walk away, 
they close the door behind them, 
and every time they take a step forward,
they are stepping on a piece 
that they reached back and lifted 
from the path which they no longer walk on 
with you. 
and eventually that path is so broken 
and the distance is so great
that neither one of you
can reach the other 
and your connection 
no longer 
exists ...

choose love

i would rather breathe love 
and risk looking crazy
than breathe crazy
and just look like love

i would rather be whole
and look incomplete
than look whole
and know that parts of me are missing

i would rather take a chance on something that i know is great
than succeed with something that i know is marginal at best ...
