Frozen Before Blooming

Sunflower frozen in glass
Before you got to bloom
I know the capability is in there
To be a most beautiful flower
And bring golden sunshine
I will not capitulate to the ice
Fear’s freezing grip on me
Potential put on hold by doubt
A stasis that can last too long
The perfect chance to thaw
In the change of seasons of life
Or an altering mind set and attitude
To nevermind and ticking time
Melting fingers grasping hope
And pushing and shoving
To rid my mind of the shackles
That keep me chained to could be
And wrings out the care
Of other people’s opinions
Leaping into the unknown air
To take the shot into the open
To take my chance and make it real
To reach and enjoy the flight
