Hesitation’s Demise

I didn’t know what the cost would be

of hesitating

waiting for a clear sign to move forward

to take that leap

into the unknown

I kept waiting to be stronger

when it wouldn’t matter,

when it wouldn’ t hurt so much

i waited

and i stayed the same

even with valiant attempts to change

the inertia

more there than the valor


i know now to take any step

no matter how small

take them in each moment

that I can

each in breath take  in the new ,

each out breath

release the old

to have something to lean into when egos

mostly mine

want to convince me that no progress has been made

that failure is the only reality

i anchor in the steady and certain waters

of a life well loved

for all that it was

and is

sustaining unwavering
