That was it.

You felt it, hovering,

the possibility of change.

You knew you only had to take a step

and life would never be the same.

You felt the moment filled with possibility

and stepped back urgently,

to familiar

    Your poem reminded me of this: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be?…” Marianne Williamson
    Loved it! ❤ CN
