. . .


It was a thought, a feeling, a moment
That crept in when I was not even looking
I did not even know that it existed inside
Until it whispered quietly to me

At first I was afraid to listen
Pushing it away as quickly as it had arrived
But it was persistent
It reminded me that in life I take risks
I go for it, no matter what it is
Because I will never know unless I try
It reminded me of my quiet strength
And let me know that no matter
I will be okay

I may stumble
But I will always stand back up
Moving forward
Smiling
Because I listened
