It feels like I’ve spent my life on the beach,
one tiny grain of sand among millions,
a nameless, faceless granule of existence.
The force of the water beckons and I sit motionless,
idly waiting for the tide to take me,
wanting to feel that rush of adrenaline,
but I never take that step closer to the shoreline.
I can’t keep hiding in plain sight,
simply watching the sun set over the horizon of my opportunity.
I can’t keep waiting for that water to reach me.
The only obstacle holding me back from adventure,
my biggest stumbling block
