First Step

I am here on that brink again 
I realize that I never left 
Thought I had moved, but then
I realize I am once again bereft.

Why am I yet again on the brink
Feeling once more that I must always choose?
Why do I always seem to think
That I will be the one to inevitably lose?

Light is shining ahead of me
Darkness is to the back
Shadows in Light I see
Yet,Dark does attack.

I am tired of being lost
I want to finally, FINALLY find
Myself no matter the cost
And to leave Darkness behind.

Can I really do this?
Can I take that step?
I desperately want the bliss
So frantically I do so prep.

I lift my foot to go
Forward and Dark
Fights me, although
My journey does embark.

Can love be there? 
May love I receive?
No longer unaware
I do now believe.

This is no mere affair
That he does so care
So Darkness BEWARE
I do now have my Bear.

    An epic journey starts with a single step, if it's love you seek, it's at your grasp...take that step with pride and dignity and make it what you may... all the best...Raul
