To try.

To try.

Day 24 — Book Writing/Birthday Month

I’d rather make a mistake

Than not try.

I’d rather reach out

Then stay still.

I’d rather fall on my face

Then never leap.

I’d rather make a fool of myself

Then let the spark walk by.

I’d rather say thank you and please

Then walk away.

I’d rather say yes

Then no.

I’d rather things be simple

Then hard.

I’d rather be free

Then tethered down.

I’d rather have said the words

Then not know.

I’d rather say oops

Than what if.

Thank you for giving that little heart below a nudge if you liked this. :)
