Choosing love over fear

Vibrant choices paint my canvas, day's new light,

where pathways branch, and shadows dance in fear.

Each breath: a stroke on love's palette, bold and bright.

*

That flutter in your stomach, moths of fears alight,

Stand in the way, diluting moments held so dear,

Vibrant choices paint my canvas, day's new light.

*

Can we trust what we see, discern the wrong from right?

So often I've looked back, challenged to hold dear

each breath: a stroke on love's palette, bold and bright.

*

So easy to hide, embraced by fight or flight,

Are the paths we choose of love or ones of fear?

Vibrant choices paint my canvas, day's new light.

*

Heart-centered or lurking thoughts, companions in our soul's fight,

compel us to confront unease, to engineer

each breath: a stroke on love's palette, bold and bright.

*

May you and I, to all the world's delight,

Listen to our hearts, renounce that anxious steer.

Vibrant choices paint my canvas, day's new light.

Each breath: a stroke on love's palette, bold and bright.
