When would you take the leap
When would you take the leap?
by Annapurani Vaidyanathan
In the name of legacy,
in the name of culture,
in the name of tradition,
how long would you hold yourself back
from embracing what is new,
from what could help you celebrate life better?
How long would you want to be stuck
between the layers of what went by and what is,
how long would you want to restrain yourself
from stepping into the future?
What would it take for you to break
the shackles that keep you
from following your heart,
from treading the uncommon path?
What would it take
for you to widen your thoughts,
to not put people in a box?
What would it take for you to step out
from the boundaries you’ve encased yourself in, from the start?
Why would you not want to unlearn everything
that has never made any sense to the world,
or to you?
