A New Day

Am I ready?

Because I’m not sure

Circumstances of the past

Doubts that forever last.

Everything all at once

Feels overwhelming.

Girl interrupted.

Holding on for dear life

Insecurities persist.

Just trying to breathe

Kaleidoscope of fears

Lost in emotion.

Multiply my thoughts.

Needless pain

Of all that is wrong

Procrastinate because I fear.

Query of something new

Remember, been here before.

Shall I give it a go?

Trust I can manage.

Understand that I am human.

Voice in my head

Weather the storm

X-ray inhibitions

You got this!

Zen in this moment!

  • As the folks at Nike liked to say when faced with something new where there is so much uncertainty over whether we are up to it, "Just do it." I believe in you, C.
