Step Outside

 

your tower feels safe
somehow
a predictable prison
you know
where you stand
in comfort
but when you close
your eyes there are
too many peas
in your bed
and your mind
awakens

is it fear or
excitement
this racing heart
mind
this restlessness
locked inside
but what could be
out there
what are you
who are you
waiting for
this life is yours
your chance to choose
your own adventure

the tower may be
comfortable
but you deserve
more than safety
stability
in these walls
there is a whole
world out there
waiting for you
to stop
waiting
for your freedom
cannot be held
in the palms of princes

and damsel
there is opportunity
in distress
