279 – Here there be dragons

Unchecked dreams
Can become
Sharp, double-edged swords.

Is always just one step away
From anarchy.

Spontaneity can get dragged
By its own impulse
Into chaos.

The road to hell,
Unlike popular belief,
Is not paved with good intentions…
Just badly thought decisions.

Tipping points,
Like distance,
Can be very hard to eyeball.

When we read
“Here there be dragons”
We tend to think they’re very far away…

They’re always closer.
