i must confess,
i have walked the highway's edge
flirting with the sidewalk, and
wondering whether to take
the one step towards the
rushing waves of traffic

i have balanced upon precipice
after precipice gazing downward,
the finality of flight a strange
and dangerous daydream
that pulls me in

and i have stood at water's ending
the sea a susurrous caress, and
yearned to move forward once,
again, again, until the ocean
can carry me home

so many storms i have weathered
so many burdens i have shouldered
and yet sometimes i forget the
most important thing of all;

i have made it this far,
i am here
i am worthy
i will go on.
Trigger warnings apply.

I really needed to write this.
