The Anxious Path: A Short Poem

People Sitting on the Edge of a Cliff · Free Stock Photo

Walking on the road away from

the disheartened, wreckage

of the past and it’s memories

and looking at life, again,

with eyes on the horizon–

Inside my soul, a need for change

and a lust for it’s touch,

as heated and impassioned

as a first kiss at bedtime…

I must make this new life

come to me,

to see it’s birth

and stand in it’s glory;

I cannot go back–again

I cannot go forward–without risk

I cannot live a life that is frayed as an old rope

I will not…

I stand on the cliff and jump

into the abyss of the future

and wait for destiny

to grasp my wings

and let me soar…
