Unauthorised Walls by Nicola Karesh
Have you ever coloured outside the walls?
Have you ever ridden along the halls,
Of places that are stamped forbidden,
Off-limits, unauthorized to you?
Have you ever dared to see what’s there,
Beyond the edges, rims and stairs?
Descended into unchartered territory,
Pushed past lines that hold you here
In safe regions of known layers?
Do you feel that edge that seems unmovable?
Do you see the lid that appears unshiftable?
Expand your vision,
Set free imagination.
Let soar wild nature,
Life is full of undiscovered areas,
Blocked passage-ways, roped off places.
If you ever venture outside the pages,
Written and stamped by cautious sages,
You may be surprised to discover
There is more waiting just for you.
Life exceeds the expectant eyes.
A willing spirit without agenda,
Slips beyond perceived barriers.
Discovers more beyond the veil.
Discovers locks can fade away,
Shifting into unknown vistas,
Cascading realms, bordering heaven.
Today, I toss away my helmet
That says I can’t, I mustn’t,
I ought not.
I let loose of inhibition.
Today is my day.
I opt to fly.
