Collide (Guest Post)

by Raquel Z. Duarte

What am I feeling?
Describe to me my thoughts
Part of me is holding back
But part of me is not
Life is too short, they say
Don’t waste any time
But remember not to make hasty choices
For with them, you will live
And die
Is fear the rope that holds me firm?
Is confusion making me doubt?
My heart says to grasp this dream come true
My brain says to stop
I will resolve in this then
Roping my heart strings to the stars
Letting the galaxies guide me
For where the constellations lie
Is where my heart wants to be
To forever abide

Here's hoping our hearts collide.
