  • There's always a fence. In front of everything. Some bigger than others. Holding me back and scaring me off. The barrier is growing in front of my eyes. Must be carrying a message. It's there for a reason, right? There to tell me to back off, stay on this side. Don't be an intruder, just mind your own business.

    But see, what's waiting beyond is the deep and wonderful sea. Stormy at times, but oh, so exciting. An ocean is not enough to measure the feelings and thoughts. It's a start. I see it and wish I could be it.

    Simply tired of standing on this side, looking over, seeing, but not reaching.

    Get your act together, girl. Act. Sail away.
