Fear’s grip holding tight
Muscles freeze icy fright
Futures’ void drives unrest
Not knowing will you pass the test

No matter times we’ve been before
Horizon daunts approaching door
What to do where to go
Next step how do you know

Facing a cliff
Retreat after a sniff
In the mirror where you came
See from a new frame

Self-talk holds us back
From leaping to our next tack
Faith of footsteps what you need
Trust a trapeze will catch indeed

Turn to future embrace with joy
Welcome unknown a play toy
Fill voids with masterful mind
Leave whimpering clinging behind

Is fear in the way of next steps?

Does evidence support the fear and is the risk real?
