Daring to say yes to your heart

It is not so difficult
to know what the heart wants.
It speaks more clearly
actually
than we dare admit.
In a moment of stillness 
the truth is there
right up close
sitting in your lap
looking you in the eye as if
it were no big deal.
One little moment 
is all it would take
to grab your heart’s truth
and run away
start a new life.
You would be happy, you know it
Perhaps not rich, or of great fame
But you would be happy
living each day 
in such close proximity
to your own heart.
No, it is not so difficult
to know what the heart wants
But to say yes
To run away
To become a slave
To that wild, burning heart
That...
That is a little more difficult.
I dare you
to
say
.
.
.
.
.
Yes.

Love and courage,
