I Will Live my Life

I spent so long
pointing my finger
I forgot to put my hand to
writing my own story
lived a foyer life
holding up at the threshold
of adventures never taken
looking in the distance
at “what if” vistas
snatched out of time
en route to work

today I am arrived
present and ready
willing to make a way
and create the experience
of this moment in time
I will write my name
upon the mountain
in a blur of light
like a glowstick
spinning, arcing
through the night

My name is Mike Bragg. I'm a Denver-based cycling enthusiast and a big advocate of mindfulness. I enjoy the outdoors, and I use mindfulness practices to help myself be more present with my adventures. I like to read challenging material, and I have a keen interest in ancient history and natural sciences.
