Step Outside

Step out of your skin for a minute
Go beyond the boundaries of form
Into a space never occupied
Go beyond yourself and look around

What would you hold back?
This debilitating self-consciousness
To be different is to be judged
To be different is to have courage

Do you wonder what’s out there?
What if you could get closer to that mystery
Where love and beauty have no definition,
No limitation
Where joy and wonder unite
In profound appreciation

For but the fear of appearing strange
To others whose boundaries are fixed and rigid
Would we deny the sense of wonder
To be accepted by others
Rather than accepting of ourselves.
