The Turning Point

by Steven Craig



I would poke my nose into your life ....
Its a short, but firm nose ...
You must stop being afraid
Stop hiding from the nothing that is not chasing you
You must allow yourself the liberty to get out.
Give yourself the break of a lifetime ...
You must allow yourself some space
Be with people again.
Be alive with some one person, or many.
Fear is worst than anything that may chase you.
When something chases you, you can stand and fight.
But fear.
Fear is more relentless than any enemy.
Listen to a man who has been there before you ...
You are there now ...
I can see you on that dark edge.
And there is no need for it.
Turn about
There is nothing there to harm you.
Only fear.
Face that fear for what it is ...
It is nothing.
It is only in your mind ...
A mind that is filled with many wonderful things afraid to peak out ...
Because fear stands before you
Go around it.
Beat it up for a change.
The life that it hurts is yours
Stop the pain
Stop running
For you can never out run fear ...
Because you always take it with you ... until you face it
Fear is the little death ... fear is the mind killer
When enough of your mind is dead, so will you be ...
and you will cry alone ... just as you fear.
Well, there is another choice.
Fear makes you hide.
But there is another choice.
Just say out loud ... My life changes ... here ... today ... now
Just say it.
Start it now ...
Nothing changes much the first day ...
But the change starts ...
That is what I ask for.
A sincere attempt at it ... make a serious go of it ...
Its YOUR life ... not your fears life.
Take over the controls and fly away from fear.
You may crash again from time to time ... as I have ...
But get up, and keep on flying.
Like the little bird out of the nest ... just keep on trying.
This is the first day of the rest of your life ....
Enjoy it with the chili ...
Open you mind as well as your life to the joys of living ...
Write again ...
Paint again
Have friends over to share coffee again
Stand in the fields and breath the fresh air.
Go to the shoppes and smell the donuts and bread
Smile at the person behind the counter and wish them that wonderful day.
Joy is contagious
And you can be swept away by yours as well as others.
Its a wonderful life when you live it, and not feel the past as much as you feel today.
Just need to run into the right kind of person ...
I'm a life type ... life is where I do my best stuff ...
I open peoples eyes, I point the way ...
But I realize that I can not live your life for you ...
So I gently kick you in the ass ...
With words and truth, and the real people will see it for what it is,
And smile, and get on with their lives, and I will be happy for them ...
And for me, a little bit of happiness that I was there to do so.
Like I said ... the first day has little change ... but its a start ...
Write something ... if only for 2 minutes ... write something ...
And tell one you love ... you think you may have come to a turning point ...
And are giving it serious thought ...
Share with someone you love the experience of turning fear out to pasture ...
For you are never alone ... when you love.
