I meander under the fear of unknown
Capable of a catharsis
Dissecting my strengths and softness
Revealing the power of me in me, yet
My resolves weaken
Measuring every step to be taken, yet
My feet tremble
Fleeting thoughts sense direction
Factoring the inevitable
Filtered by notions, self and borrowed
Chained down with perceptions
I trudge in apprehensions
Excusing to pretend and otherwise
Under figments of imaginary fears
I know! I know!
I wish too
To be a wobbling toddler again
In blissful ignorance of a fall
Thud!... Stand up to cheers
Step by step, giggle toothless
Before the sprint
I know! I know! of course!
Of the laws of natural progression, yet
I plead guilty masked in the adulthood of ignorance.
