Words of Encouragement [a poem]

By Forrest Rivers | Featured Contributor

All we are
Is stardust
And fractals
Of cosmic waves
Dancing in a sea
Of love

Life has meaning
A message
And a sacred rhythm
That drums to the beat
Of one

I used to be afraid
I used to run from the world
I used to fear the haunting specter
Of failure
But then I came to see
My mind was my own worst enemy
And that what I truly feared
Was none other than my own mortality

To live life
I had to first accept death
And to find success
I had to come to believe
That the only failure
Is not finding the courage
To chase your dreams.
