Let's ride the stars to eternity
and find in heart a key
to the great journey outward

What a deep world outside
and how courageous
it is to venture out there

The introverted know little
of the great perils
that befall the extrovert

The life within is safe
and easy to fall into
an attempt at escape

In order to know yourself
one must look beyond
in the world beyond yourself

It is there that lies truth
unmasked and real
an unshakeable reality

For the inside is deceptive
an established front
dictated by the heart

this work is both perceptive and evocative...and it is something I can relate to on a personal level quite well. From my own experience, I can say you have hit the proverbial nail on the head with this work.

Well said, Brett.
"The life within is safe"
It is so much more comfortable to live inside one's own head.
I enjoyed this.

Hmm, teasing thought on being an introvert. I don't know, Brett, in my work with socially marginalized mainly men, not a few behaved as introverts but were arguably sentinels. They sat quietly watching every move, watching the extrovert blow his top while at the same time taking his eye off the ball - the introvert saw it. Extroverts can be too busy being heard and seen at the expense of losing sight of themselves.
Still, foof for thought in this write.

For the inside is deceptive
an established front
dictated by the heart

No truer fact be spoken. The heart rules the roost. Nice piece!

A fresh slant on 'thinking outside the box'. but, I would love to read more more more on this theme, please!

Taking up the challenge is the key; well-expressed, Brett. Love and peace to you,

This is an interesting piece. It's almost like you are saying that you never know who you are until you are forced to do something that will show you who you are from an outside perspective.
Only when you escape the bind that holds you without fear of changing or dying can you see beyond yourself to look through life at yourself and judge yourself based on what you see. Maybe that's not what you wanted people to read into it, but it should be.
I like this, it's an excellent piece. :)

This poem goes the distance and takes up a purpose beyond your own advancement. This transcends on a level of one who wants to guide, be a pathfinder. LET'S RIDE THE STARS has a definitive (exact and positive) latitude that is rarely seen here on Authors Den. Brett, you are encouraged on your continued poetic pursuit. You have an appetite for growth...Blessed Be.
