Walk Away


I walk up to it
And put my hand upon it
Tension in my mind begins to mount
Doubt
It overwhelms me
Screaming at me

Walk Away

I’ve waited for so long for this moment
For this chance
I pray that the qualm doesn’t sway me
I just close my eyes
And place my ear against it
Hoping that I can hear
Something
Hoping that there is a sign
Give me an okay
Nothing
Of course it wouldn’t be that easy

Walk Away

Every fiber of my being is
Commanding
But then there is that tiny microbe
Minuscule
But loud nonetheless
A voice inside me
Telling me everything will be fine
Empowering
It tells me to grab the knob
As I turn it
The voices become deafening

WALK AWAY

It doesn’t matter though
It is locked and I don’t have the key
Frustrated
I fall to my knees and begin to weep
Frustrated
The doubts within
Take control of me
Moments of happiness
Of love
Moments of peace
Of being
These are all memories of life
Within my grasp
But I have an obstacle to pass
That is demanding
I
Walk Away

if its behind that door, then let me break it

Fear. It cripples us and holds us back. Fear is the opposite of faith. Faith is a gift from God. Sometimes it is hard to remember to go claim our gifts.
