Each step I take is new

There is no glue

No footprint

No pathway

Because my immediate ancestors walked as long

And as far

As they could


Have paid more attention

To the lessons being taught

Or rather I should have learned

That they too were paving their own path

Trying to do the math

That leads to greatness

Or purpose

But it’s not quite adding up

The marathon of it all is long and winding

The pitfalls have been blinding

Causing temporary distress

With long term effects.

The diagnosis –

Self awareness



Movement forward

But what are we going toward?

The present moment awareness

Drives me further into my present day reality

Which feels unfamiliar

That territory is uncomfortable

It’s vulnerable

It’s a place – a space, full of possibilities

Where the unknown delivers a promise of blind faith

In my face

Forcing me to surrender and confront my fears.

Days filled with tears

Nights filled with joy

And laughter

This character I’ve managed to develop over time

Is mine to dismantle.

The irony of this awakening

Is the confrontation

The stirring of the proverbial pot

Juxtaposed to the paralysis of analysis that plagues my mind

In which I’ve managed to find

The heroine of my narrative

In my unwritten story

Where God gets the glory

Because He challenges me to believe

As I conceive

The possibilities surrounding my next



The lifeline that drives my confidence and my ego at the same damn time.

It is mine

To conceive. Believe. Achieve.

That the battle will actually never be won

But it will be mine to lose

And choose

I shoot the gun

I miss the target.

I shoot again

I miss again.


I advance the the next level

New devil

Different game

New skills

More thrills.

More Life.

More Opportunity

Back in the race

Navigating with grace

It’s a place – a space

Full of possibilities

Where the unknown


a promise of


Toward more

Uncharted Territory
