wandering away
my fears
took me so
from where
i wanted
to be.

This excerpt comes from page 209 from Christopher McGeown‘s new book: the man on the moon.
It is one of many poems I personally connected with. Because fear can be a driving force in ones life. I know it has been in mine, because I sometimes feel stuck, unable to move forward, looking back. When what I should be doing is looking forward, chasing my dreams, living my dreams.
