Where is ‘out there’?
Once, when I made my friends aware
That I was dumped and lonely beyond repair,
They had one piece of advice to share:
“Get out there!”
I asked, "Where is 'out there'?"
Is this a place where the air is rare?
A site where there is no despair?
Is it safe “out there”?
Or is it anyplace other than my chair?
I think my friends believe “out there”
Is a directive to risk, to dare
To love “out there.”
