Writer's Island # 24

Prompt # first

The theme is Envision
...and the below image
Oh, I love a challenge... so here goes
and thank you Writer's Island for
thinking I could

If I Had Never Bent

So many days were a heavy
canvas of weary dull clouds
that enclosed me
What laid just outside the big tent
of my life I feared a better dream
than what I had envisioned
But if I had never risked
never lifted that veil that oppressed
I would have never seen the blue silk
skies of freedom that were within my reach

  10. FABULOUS~true words to live by!

  11. Love this poem, sort of a "road not taken" approach. It's true - if we don't embrace all opportunities, we will miss out on some great sights, sounds, and experiences. Keep 'em coming to the Island!
