A New Year

Midnight ramblings
Do you hide in the shadows
Or do you stand in the sun?

Do you show all your colors
Or do you show none?

Do you see beauty in moments
Or rush to the next?

Do you bring happiness to others
Or just cause a mess?

Will fear hold you back 
From the love you deserve?

Will the walls that you've built 
Break all your nerve?

Can you make a promise
And that promise not break?

Do you believe in yourself
Or the things people say?

Will you be a scared little mouse 
Or be bold and be brave?

Are you afraid to be foolish,
To laugh till you cry?

Are you a slave to your ego
Or like a bird, free to fly?

Do tears cause you shame,
Are you swollen with pride?

Are you chasing the game
Yet never enjoying the ride?

Will you jump in the waters
Or stand at the bay?

Will you follow the rules
Or make your own way?

Will you take that bold step
Or turn, run and hide?

Will you step on the gas,
Get in for the ride?

If we never try,
We will never know.
