Fear Less




Fear Less


Fearless
(she thinks them)
running barefoot on the lawn
spinning in the rain
open arms & eyes & hearts
unafraid to
test their wings
 trying to fly
certain of success
while she
frozen at the portal
umbrella in hand
watches
wistfully

  1. This is beautiful! I'm her "umbrella in hand/ watches/ wistfully" I feel like i'm just watching others taking that step forward and succeeding and I only wish I could.

    1. Don't be too hard on yourself -- or too impatient. I think we are all her at one time or another. And those "others" we're watching? I'll bet they feel the same! Just keep making the effort, and you'll get there in your own way and your own time. :-)
