It is easy to complicate things.
To make a short story a much longer story
As time has continued to tick by
I have noticed a great need for bluntness. For cutting to the chase.
Too often I find myself restrained
Held back by inhibitions and fears and impractical tact
I am poignantly reminded that life is fleeting .
While discussions and fretting can eat away at my time here, I often forget the most important part:
To learn and to read.
To admire great works of art.
To follow dreams, to listen to the soul;
To embrace the tired heart.
