What are you looking for?

life is like a recipe
there are so many chapters on where to start
so many decisions to make
dessert? or breakfast?
cake? or poached eggs?
the long list of things needed to succeed in life
making sure to add the right amount of things
to not have an imbalance of one thing
if you mess up, don't worry
you can fix it
just add some other factors like water or flour
that will lead you back on track
still not working?
it's not too late to start over
maybe choose a different path this time- lunch?
spice things up by going out of your comfort zone
be adventurous, add sprinkles or salt
tired of being locked up in a tiny recipe book
where your family are the only ones that see you?
be in restaurant menus, posters, billboards
let the world see you for who you really are
and don't be afraid to stand out
let others get to know you so well
that they know you in their mind
and don't have to recite yourself from a piece of paper
before the recipe ends
make changes before it's in the oven
before it gets cooked
because then and only then
will it be too late
your only hope then
is to see how long you can go
without shriveling up and being thrown out in the trash
life a life worth living
and don't ever regret it.
