the unloved life

August 20, 2019

EVERYTHING YOU DREAM OF IS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF FEAR. What are you waiting for? A regret-filled life is nothing to be proud of. Maybe this poem says that in a dark way. Maybe it should be more inspirational & cheery but honestly, there’s nothing cheery about unfulfilled potential. If other people cannot see your vision it doesn’t mean you’re wrong, it’s that they’re not you. Be brave. Whatever it is just start taking small steps towards it every day. On the days you feel like you’re going backwards (and there will be so many of those) hold to your dream even tighter. On the days when it feels like the world is pushing you in another direction, whisper the names of your dreams over and over, even if you’re left guarding just the tiniest flame, don’t let her be blown out by the hot air of others who don’t know. What’s an important life goal to you might seem utterly insignificant to others. This doesn’t mean you’re wrong. You will fail plenty of times before succeeding. Learn from all of this, keep adapting & changing until you get it right. It will make your dream so much more valuable. “Everything you‘ve ever wanted is on the other side of fear.” – George Addair. 

This poem and others are in the new hand-stitched poetry pamphlet The Slow-Time Traveller. I’ve got everything back from the printers yesterday and will be stitching them this week for postage early next week. This pamphlet and other publications are available through the online shop. For some unfathomable reason the PayPal buttons only work on a laptop, not a phone, and I’m not tech savvy enough to fix it. I amazed myself that I got this far with it tbh. Thank you to everyone who’s already supporting my work – I couldn’t do it without you ❤️???
