"The Middling Road"
I seek freedom. To write, to live, to feel.
Inhibitions to destroy, to make end.
I want to find and grasp only what's real
Fear nor shrink not, my thoughts in strength defend.
And yet I know and must honestly admit
Too often reticence keeps me safe, dry
Loss of control is no better transit
I know one way alone only leads life awry.
And so, I have to take a middling road,
To find futures that won't lead to decay
And while this struggle seems a heavy load
I must say for me there's no other way
To sum in two words this mindset I seek,
I wish to become bold and yet humble, meek.
