Ladders

She’s made you overly cautious.
What happened to the boy who was reckless?
Has he become a man afraid?
Does she remind you how dangerous
it’s always been to love me?

Life isn’t as dangerous as she thinks.
We all fall and get back up again.
Knees get skinned and eyes blackened.
Life always leads to death,
but refusing to breathe dirty air
by holding your breath gets you there quicker.

In matters of the heart,
sometimes the most dangerous choice
is the safest choice.
Take your chances,
don’t wait for someone to give them to you.
If we never climb,
how do we get there?
