When it’s too late…

airport-goodbyes-e1518622816977

I’ve watched a lot of people allow
pride and/fear rob them of true joy.

Often, I talk about living; truly living.
Taking risks, being vulnerable, being brave…
And people think I’m naive.

We have allowed fear to convince us that
Speaking our hearts makes us weak.
So we wallow in regret,
When it’s simply too late,
Pining over what could,
Should or would have been.

And when it’s too late… It’s simply too late.

I’ve watched a lot of people
Watch the people they love,
Fall in love with someone else
Because pride and fear
Convinced them not to try.

I’ve watched a lot of people
Watch their lives drag on in mediocrity
Because they allowed pride and fear
To convince them that they did not have
The ability to be anything more.

I’ve watched a lot of people drown their sorrows
In regret while thinking about what
Could have, should have, should have been.
Don’t let yourself be one of those people.

Because once it’s too late, it’s simply too late.

Vulnerability is strength.
Forgiveness is love.
Effort is attractive.
