A New Path

My heart says
walk this path
for it's a path
filled with happiness

Take a step
feel the joy
don't be afraid
just take my hand

A feeling to accept
has arisen 
but silently inside
fright is hiding

Truly hoping
that it would remain there
I close my eyes
and take the first step.......

    Nicely written Maryann and a reminder to us all. I hope you don't mind if I suggest that you make it clearer which feeling you wished to "remain there" - At first, I thought you meant "fright", not "joy"

    Courage and fear hide behind the lines of this strong poem. Another great one for Maryam! Lots of Love ~Jen~

    The first step is always the hardest, and without risk of falling, we will never know if we can fly. Beautiful write! Love, Shar
