I’m Standing on the Precipice
I’m standing on the precipice,
Wondering which way I should go,
Will I make the right decision?
How is it that I will know?
Left, right-right, left, I really am not sure,
My indecisiveness is what keeps me standing here.
What if I take a leap of faith?
And it turns out not to be right,
Can I trust myself to handle it?
Or, will I be led by my apparent fright?
I know that I cannot stay here with such inner strife,
‘Cuz living in this Liminal state isn’t truly living life.
I tell myself to forge ahead, there’s no turning back,
‘Why is it that I am really holding onto this ledge?’
Is it to hide my own greatness, even from me?
So I take a chance and move one step closer to the edge,
“What’s the worst that can happen?” the saying rings,
The worst is that I will have figured out a few more things.
Those which work, maybe those which don’t,
But with each realization comes a move toward,
The strength, the freedoms, the character who is me,
Another lesson learned? Now, that’s a chance I can afford,
I want to be who I am because of MY choices,
Not because of others’ expectations or loud, coaxing voices,
And, most certainly NOT as a result of my very own fears!
I’m standing on the precipice…the view is breath-taking to see,
So many possibilities awaiting the person who is about to be me:-)
