. . .

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


Because I listened
