Be Not Afraid, Just Ask

Afraid-of-what-you-think

There is something I’ve wanted my entire life,

and the moment has come, and I have to ask for it.

If I don’t get what I ask for

I will have a momentary pinch and I will thrive.

If I don’t muster the courage to ask,

that pinch will become a pang of indefinite length

of which I will survive.

I’d rather thrive.

If I ask, no matter what the answer,

I will be more alive.

Oh yes, alive.
