There comes a brief glimpse
Of a choice: Happiness or fear
When you have the option
Do you choose yourself?
How much can you risk?
How open can your heart stretch?
When tears flow freely
And you don’t know which are for the bitter and which for the sweet
How tight should you pull the thread
When you sew your broken pieces back together?
When you set out on a new path
In an unknown direction
When you let the dam breach
And the river unleashes
What poetry is written in your soul?
