The Longer the Leap, poem by Danna Faulds

The Longer the Leap

I’m not here to muddle through,
one tedious chore at a time.
My destiny isn’t boring or
humdrum but vibrantly alive –
each breath a chance to draw
the mystery inside of me and
let life work its magic.
All it takes is the choice to
open my heart and give myself
fully into life. Obstacles,
impossible odds, fear, and
hesitation are all here to
awaken my determination,
to stimulate the knowing that
my soul isn’t here to be
a spectator. This day was made
for jumping into with both feet,
the longer the leap, the more
satisfied my smile will be tonight
when I give myself to sleep.

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.

    As usual, I am stealing your content. This poem is what I needed to further focus on moving out of the fear of COVID.❤️
