A WALK ON THE WILD SIDE

“A WALK ON THE WILD SIDE”

“America— fill me in on your new vision
Wake me up from indecision
Help me trust your mighty wisdom
Show me how to question questions, and lead the way to contemplation

Uncertainty about your future is like opening your eyes wide in the dark
Closing them hard and opening them again—
To be blinded by sparkling silver dots
When you refocus, you are blind again, but at least, somehow, briefly you saw the light

The difficulty in the pursuit of changing life circumstances,                                                                                                       involves an honest and real look at the Wild Side of our nature-
The ability to throw caution to the wind with no guilt -- no regrets

Most of life has been written, talked and acted out and then filled with doubt
Grass seems greener over here—even the fog of it all keeps me clear

Perhaps the conspiracy to explain the success of this culture is… immediacy
Here today, gone tomorrow because yesterday’s following was nothing more than an implement--

Social rituals seldom involve the re-hashing of clichés or approval addiction motivation
This little ‘pit-stop’ we call life—that we take so seriously- worry about…
is nothing but a an opportunity to enjoy our adventures in a limited time frame compared to promised
Eternity    
                     
 It is only in the appreciation of passion and taking steps of Faith that we can truly say:

WE HAVE WALKED ON THE WILD SIDE

    Yes, we've walked the wild side and walked where none others have walked. This is who we are and stand blessed with God given strength to face whatever comes our way.... Great write..... Jake
