I ask myself from time to time,
what is it that makes me climb?
I have around me all my life,
my family,
my friends,
I am a wife.
Need not to venture north so far,
just to sip the wine of never before.
Need not to explore the tides of the open sea.
Even if just for me.
Need not to fill a page
of adventure...
of what ifs...
if this is the life I wish.
I am full.
Possibly overfilling...
possibly dripping onto the floor.
So why ask for more?
Why desire another open door?
When life around me is bliss..
when fullfillment doesnt exist?

I ask myself from time to time.
Why greed the highest mountain,
the farthest distance?
why turn the page of an empty book
and keep on looking?

And I sit with an empty pen
and wonder, where have I been?
Just for me.
Just to see.
Just to tip a toe in it and believe.
That's what I seek.
That's why I think...

To dream,
whether it pops at the seams.
To dream,
to do this for me.
Can't I satisfy and believe?
Don't I deserve to accept a challenge in it for me?
I have never been so selfish.
Never been so afraid.
But I have family.
I have friends.
I am a wife, a mother, a heart within.
Let me climb the rock below that mountain.
Let me stand tall with two feet.
So what if two feet high is so low...
let me stand by "me".
Just give me clearance so I may see.

I love the revelation of what we writers always feel but never take the time to share.

Provocative and innovative.

Good job, Tabitha!

you do it because the opportunity is there -- a challlenge to be explored -- as humans we are driven by the unknown, to see what is there -- to overcome obstacles and sate imagination -- to be the best we can possibly be -- great poem -- peace and love my friend -- Jon Michael
