Character

I noticed
the solid ground
because, despite my fear
I landed
rather than continuing to fall
nothing about my fear
changed
my discomfort was full
but I experience
these things
while planted on ground
standing, alone
firm.

And that makes all the difference.

Fear is not knowing
Solid ground is known
by your body
and so your mind
and spirit follow
and not knowing
while standing on your earth
is a different way.

I created that solid ground
by digging
digging, digging
and by wanting to be
better than my anger
stronger than my hate
and distrustful of my punishment.

I listened to my heart
when my heart said

Of course there’s more

I’m new at this
and hope, always, to be…

Of course there’s more
and it’s yours
when you’re ready
