Leap of Faith

Feelings of first love.

Nervous excitement.

Vulnerable hope.

Standing on the edge

afraid to jump

and freefall

into the unknown.

Heart knowingly pulls

turning Fear’s attention

from the abyss

to rest on your shadow.

The shell, of your potential.

No freewill, to anxiously venture.

Eternally tethered, to this spot.

The hollowed companion

of forfeited dreams.

The weight of

never knowing

what could have been

takes hold.

Intuition whispers,

‘this is your journey’,

as you courageously leap

into hope.

Trusting the universe

will catch you.
