Born Again

Today, I swapped the warmth of belonging for the cold of freedom.

Today, I sacrificed the safety of certainty for the lure of possibility.

Today, I traded a life lit by street lamps to that spread wide with stars.

Today, I swapped approval for submission.

Alas enough about today. Tomorrow you are born again.
