sink or swim


I've lived a life of almost,
Of mayhaps, and maybes.
A life of could have been that became never was.
I've lived a life of leaps not taken,
A life of bounds not reached.
I've lived a life of dreams I dreamed but never dared to reach.
I've lived a life of caution,
Of fear for the unknown.
I've lived my life not having lived,
True life I've never known.
But I've come to recognize,
what I truly could have been.
And now it's time to live my life,
To not let my fear win.
So now I go in leaps a bounds,
With caution to the wind.
I can no longer live an almost life.
It's time to sink or swim.
