FOMO* No More

She cradled connection as a child would a bear,
Afraid to be alone inside her little lair.
Reliant on the action, the fuss, and the buzz,
She yearned daily for attachment if only just because.
More disposed to day dream than to chase dream in independent feat,
She sacrificed some strength and dignity for a profile and a seat.

In newfound awareness of the petty mores she'd lately entertained,
She forged ahead of her own accord, a go-getter re-ordained.
Without a bias or undue ties to sway her every thought,
She arrested distraction in its tracks and go back she did not.
So while the world documented each idle stance for the sake of exhibition,
She carped the diem out of life, owing to nothing but intuition.

Make a move and reinvent fruition,
Amanda :)
