Fear of what comes next

When the fear of what comes next is over,
The endless holiday of the present begins,
For what is a holiday-
If it is not a time and place free from caring
About the world and your place in it?
Your place is now,
The world is now,
You are now.
So let us take this next step together,
Just this small, tiny step
And let the rest emerge as it will,
Seagulls on a deck-
Can leave anytime,
Without being aware they are free,
So let’s all stop sailing for worrytown
Shall we?

    That fear of what comes next is a sticky one. It’s hard to take the leap sometimes. But you have to or stay stuck.

      Hi Sonia! The first step is certainly the hardest, and that is the one we must take again and again. I think writing is in many ways a warrior art. It can take great courage.

    Wise reflections, Mark. Worrying doesn’t accomplish much and I have a PhD in it!!!
