SIDEWAYS

There is a sideways to life,

when the steps of hesitancy alter

a forward course.

 

Though the ground remains

unshaken, we tremble with

instability, as the enemy of

doubt sets up camp.

 

A war begins.

 

The air is full of wind

and rain forcing us to seek

shelter from this storm and

the next and the next.

 

We encourage the safety we

miss to return, checking behind

us as we walk, hoping for its

shadow.

 

With the morning comes

a new light, a new

foundation and a new

beginning. We just need to

breathe it in.
