I’m Not Afraid

Life rejects the intuitive map

Unexpected turns, detours, construction

The scenery, pretty but foreign

Was I staring at my own destruction?

Rivers run deep, yet creeks creep

Anxiety builds, awaiting time to arrive

The quiet invites deep, cold thoughts

When doubt and fear thrive

In the neurons of my mind

The universe peeks through

Grabbing hold of memories

Of familiar things I knew

The curtain opens to reveal

A solitary, naked journeyman

Stripped of my fashioned resume

Looking back, where it began

Chances are, chances taken

The gathering gloom immerses

The only fool is a reflection

To the heavens I scream curses!

In my heart you have a home

Safe from any coming threats

Uncertainty is not welcome here

Neither are leftover regrets
