I’m standing at the edge of the precipice of my life,
The view is breathtaking,
The journey behind me an achievement,
The adventure ahead is exciting,
I can see clearly where I’m going,
The path I want to take is difficult but well lit,
I feel a knot in my stomach,
A dread of actions to come,
Necessary decisions and horrors to face,
My mantra for today keeps me feeling powerful,
A balm for the soul,
A tonic to get me over the line.
“Stride confidently towards today’s fears in order to reach tomorrow’s goals”,
I play it on repeat to soothe my chaotic mind.
