Breaking free from being stuck Indoors.

Breaking free from being stuck Indoors.

A Poem by Dawn


Our hearts are made
for sharing.
Our hands are made
for holding.
Our minds to use
and develop.
To learn new skills
as well as communicate with others.

Our bodies are to move and grow.

Don't hide away from living
your life and from others.

Learn to mix and share who you are.

As locking yourself away indoors.
Only hurts you.
And no one else.

Loneliness is a killer.
Don't let it take you.

Shut behind
a closed door.
Day in and out.

Letting the world pass you by.
And feeling lonesome and alone.

Step outside.
Feel the fresh air on your face.
And boldly venture to new pastures
as well as
newfound dreams
of adventures.
That is awaiting just for you.

As they will put a spring
in your step.
And lift your heart,
mind and soul too.

With a new found purpose and beginning
for you. Outside of your front door.

How truly uplifting this is, Dawn. A simple walk around the block can make all the difference in a day AND in your attitude! But you've got to make that first step, in opening the door. A comfort zone might only be as far as the mailbox, but every day, you can extend it a little longer...and hopefully the warmth of sun will encourage you to go further. When those endorphins kick in, you'll feel all the better for it! Great perspective, Dawn!

I agree dear Dawn.
"As they will put a spring
in your step.
And lift your heart,
mind and soul too."
Today I was outside. Ice storm blocked my front door. Had to dig my way out. Sort of fun?? Wonderful poetry shared dear friend.

As I've mentioned in a previous review of your poem . . . getting out in the neighborhood was the highlight of my younger days. One of the challenges of aging is the default position of staying in your chair. Just got a dog . . . that will help.
Dawn, thanks for the reminder.

Hi Tom, thanks for your thoughts. Dawn. I must admit dogs are great at getting you out and about.
At times my daughter suffers from agrophobia and finds it too difficult to contemplate leaving home on her own. That is isolating. I am so pleased because she has just found the courage to break that cycle and took a short walk on her own a couple of days ago. Your lines made me think of her. Thank you Dawn.

Hi Chris, That is wonderful news to hear about your daughter, Congratulate her from me to please. I.. read more
good advice in this poem...but i especially like "hands are made for holding"
i don't think couples do that enough these days...i liked the old days, my young days...hand holding meant a lot..kissing meant a lot...i don't know that we appreciate either enough these days.
but yes...even after being hurt...we need to not lock our hearts away just for protection...without risk true happiness will never be reached.
