Tentatively toe-testing the waters

of the Rubicon,

nervously glancing around,

longing to linger on these safe, gentle banks;

dare you cross?

Twines of racing thought knot themselves

round your brain but

nothing ventured nothing gained so,

with a sharp intake of breath,

eyes tight shut, you place

that first irrevocable step.

Eyelids lifting

your feet plant one wet step after another,

waging war with your mind,

blocking its miasmous doubts

but letting your heart filter in –

allowing Hope and Possibility to lead you by the hand

and carry you trembling through.

– JK Rowbory
