Cuddle Up

Cuddle up.
I ask you to be brave,
not to be afraid
of what was,
or will be.
It is a question
whose answer might help you.

Something to consider
with strangers on the street.
If you had the choice,
if you were shown
what would be,
and led to places never imagined,
would you have chosen to be born?

To live in the houses
that waited for you?
To dream their dreams,
and know the people
who became your blood,
your happiness,
your sorrow?
To live,
to have your life,
and in the end
have no regrets?
