As I dream about escaping this plaster prison, I sink ever so slightly into a nightmare
Shaking momentarily in my shoes at the thought of facing the Lions and Tigers and Bears
Oh my!!!! What will I do in the big bad woods????
Will I fall victim to the dark... become a prisoner of freedom?
Silly fears, ha! I need to dive right into their dark waters, only there will I find the sparkling city under the sea.
The lost Atlantis, hidden under the depths
Fear of the unknown, I will admit I own, I cling to my safety jacket, pathetically attached to my security blanket
Then I remind myself... I did not choose this security blanket, it was simply given to me to keep warm in my more vulnerable years
This attachment is only a manifestation of familiarity, an illusion of necessity that I have long out grown
It is time to peel away these unnecessary layers, expose my naked self, embrace my vulnerabilities, face my fears!
