824 Promise [03 December 2007]

This road that I have followed
the path on which I’ve trembled
opens ahead of me once more.
In my gaze it spreads so far ahead,
so many promises, so many possibilities
laid out before me in bright colors
awakens the hope that has slept inside.
I have only to raise my hand to reach out,
to touch its vibrant hues
and I will become painted in similar.
Hesitant to feel that brilliance encompass me,
uncertain if I should at all give in
to the prospect of becoming something more,
chained as I am by my own insecurities.
