Fear known...Fear not!


Ahead I plod.

I can’t see what the future holds.

Fear creeps in. Envelops and smothers me like smog.

Lead me! Hold my hand! I am afraid!

Deep Breath. One foot ahead of the other.

Repeat, repeat.

Experiences cascade all around me.

I can do this!

Unknown becomes known.

Beginnings and endings.

I weave with the thread of life.

Fear not, the sun rises again in the morning.

This poem is about: 
My family
Our world
