The dance of fear,
Of not being enough,
Stops and starts.
The unknown, an
Uncharted sea,
Beckons...
And yet,
I hesitate.
 
The potential to fail,
Hangs like an
Anchor...
Better to take the
Dive...
The past, a memory,
The future is wide open,
Live for today.

(2014)

Sometimes fear and indecision can be the biggest obstacle to change.
