I worry if I don't try to drive
even if it means I crash and burn
I will be leaving the embers to burn
to ashes all that remains in this shell
an egg that upon cracking will
float off on a breeze.
Chicks are given beaks so that
they can crack their own shells
from the inside OUT into the world
A self determination that allows
the pheonix to blossom up again stronger
after one more self destruction.
If I do not crash (crack) myself
how can the flare of light come
as I push my beak out of my shell
to take in life anew?
