Beware Guardian’s Warnings

The gatekeeper, the door stop
My mind is my guardian
The caution to prevent disaster
To ensure that I step carefully
Or avoid something completely
But when I listen unconditionally
Avert myself from everything
I miss so very much
She is generous with her warnings
But I am learning to discern
To listen with my intuition
To feel the relevant from overextension
Not all things are dangerous
Not all things are bad for me
If I allow the fear from these ‘what ifs’
Rule every decision I make
I’ll never live but rather hide
Never find the magic or possibilities
So I thank her for the consideration
But let her know when it is unnecessary
And trust my gut with deciding this one
