The art of life

Is there any greater liberty than knowing the choice you want to make,
and then making it?

Perhaps in close contention is the stumbling upon a paralysing fear,
only to quieten it all with a conclusive and calm resolve.

And I sit here not in the absence of action,
but seek to craft and whittle and taper
the wooden block that keeps pen from paper,
and I from satisfaction.

Inspire and goad me from resignation,
unshackle the apathy that binds animation,
and I dare you to find me for a moment retired
’til this writing is worthy of being desired;
a reason discovered, and a purpose acquired.

The meaning of life is to experience living,
so surrender your heart to the art of its giving.
