I Dare You


Get out of your house-
Breathe in the scent, as the
Sun sinks lower,
Each day a few minutes sooner.

Savour the sights and sounds
Before they go into hibernation,
Before winter sets in.

Have a bonfire,
Kick some leaves-

Don’t say “I’m too old/too cold/too grown-up”
Don’t wind up missing it.
No way to get it back again.

Time passes by so fast,
Use it, love it-
Choose life. Joy.

You were made to enjoy it-
Life was made for you-
Live it unashamedly.

I dare you to.
