Letting go of the demon's hand - day 1- resisting the call to adventure

Resisting the call to adventure


Standing in the dark,

You’ll never know if it’s

The familiarity of the shadows

Or the fear of the light

That drives.


Standing on the outside

You’ll never know

If it’s the comfort of


Or the strangeness

of acceptance

that compels you.


Standing on the edge

You’ll never know

If it’s the desire to drown

Or the need to swim

That saves you.


Again and again you’ll

Be called.

To allow success or

To fight to lose

So will you accept

Or reject

The call to adventure
