Twas Within My Grasp


To have set off on my own

Would have been great

Living the free life

That university life

And reaching a new perspective

But something held me back

I ended up staying at home

Going to local college

And never got to shed my protective layer

I’m still young

That dream is still within reach

But slipping away


If I could go back

I would take the chance

And just do it

Instead of

Second guessing myself

And falling back

On the easy path

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Out of Reach.”

Write about the one X that got away — a person, an experience, a place you wanted to visit. How much would you change about your life to have it within reach again?
