Break Free

Watch the countdown, wish time away.
We stay, stuck planning, not moving.
For our hesitation we’ll pay,
as prey sat motionless, losing.

Misery followed us this year,
in fear we then shrank back to hide
holding on to all we held dear.
A mere waif we’ve become inside.

Enough! Lose your shackles and move!
Remove the boundaries and fly,
out into the unknown to prove
we move toward a clearer sky.
