This One Life

girl-107617_640With this one wild
and precious life,
I will seek to master
only me.

I will embrace
each glorious
and slippery day
with gratitude.

I will build a shack
on a rock,
leaving behind
my castle of sand.

I will furnish it with a table
to share my bounty,
and a bed
to share with my love.

I will ready my feet
for adventure,
and gather new stories
for the ancient days.

I will live bold,
fearless of the dark,
taking my refuge in the light
where nothing can hide.

and when I am tired
I will sleep,
and when I sleep
I will dream.
