Everest Isn’t So Big

Climb the paper mountain one word at a time,
Just write a goddam poem stop obsessing over rhymes.
Stop and watch a sunset-
The view from here tastes great.
Stop diving into shark-infested oceans, and first learn how to swim
Before you can finish that, you have to learn how to begin.
Put down the map to Eden-it’s blocking the view- and remember to get lost,
Lose yourself in time, in words, in eyes, in her- not in weeks
Learn how to balance between sweet dreams and softly sleep.
And darling dear, don’t be afraid to jump from all the cliffs of ‘what if’
-It’s worth it, I promised you this-
