Have I managed to slip by undetected?
By doing so, am I now unprotected,
Left open to those who would mean me harm?
Should I be feeling some degree of alarm?
I'm not sure how I got past all of my inner defenses
When I was putting them up, I must have skimmed the directions.
I've escaped from the cell I set up for myself
I suppose I should probably look elsewhere for help
Seeing as how I can't even contain one simple soul,
Letting it creep from its comfortable hole
Into places where it has no control.
But how can I really be upset at letting myself have a chance at the world?
It may be scary, painful, and a joy to avoid
And along the line I may get hurt and annoyed
But life is only meant to be lived
So, I guess my transgression I can forgive.
