Participate in life!
to live in
a room safely
mourning your freedom?
Climb that sprawling oak tree,
stand atop a jungle Jim,
walk a forest trail listening
to nightfall howling in the distance,
daring to create your finest moments.
We groom our children to accept a cage,
mental prisons formed from safety’s bars,
denying their need to prepare
for a universal truth…
Safe is an illusion.
Seek out adventure,
feel life flowing
