    Beyond the Bounds

    Beyond the Bounds

    The first part is easy.
    Close your eyes, take a breath, step
    outside of the inside, beyond the bounds
    (past the pale)
    that fence you in.
    You've been here too long, stuck blind in
    the wasteland of your life;
    the melody of dawn calls you, and
    the song is too loud to ignore.

    The second part's a bit more tricky:
    a golden glow bathes this new world, but
    your eyes aren't used to the light.
    Your body, now near weightless
    (wonderfully warm)
    isn't sure how to handle its unrestricted mobility.
    You breathe in sweet fragrances you can't recognize
    as your nostrils have grown accustomed
    to only the stench of decaying failure, which
    stinks of rotted dreams.
    The newness of it all is frightening
    (joy of life is not something you readily accept), and
    it would be so easy to run back to
    the stagnant hell you just left.
    Don't.

    The third and final part is the most important.
    Keep moving.
    Run, fly, dance, or leap--just don't stop.
    To stand still
    (to become static) is to die; this
    world will begin to look a lot like the old one
    if you grow content to sit and watch it pass.
    Don't stop until you find that song, that freedom,
    that life that is rightfully yours, when
    you lay safely in the arms that were meant to hold you.

    I'm waiting for you...

    Lost love? ^_^
    It's different from the other entries, with that I mean the 3 parts in your poem.
