[Poetry] Twenty-Something


we long for days of freedom found
now at the road
i’ve come undone
for many years
i’ve been guided by
the many now
uncertain i

courage first to fail
then will I dare
go where i’m meant to be
not to compare or to envy
the neighbour next to me

oh soul, go be inspired by
by the ones who dare to try
no small step too small
no blush of courage
too shy
