Here I stand again

On the edge of a new beginning

Past regrets and indiscretions loom large

As they whisper in my ear the things I cannot change



Here I stand again

As I have so many times before

Looking into the jaws of uncertainty with wonder

Not knowing if the road I am about to take will set me free



Here I stand again

Left with a new and overwhelming choice

One not to ever be taken lightly or made foolishly

A decision that could make or break the strongest of free wills



Once again I stand

Looking into the beckoning distance

Each direction giving no hint of what mysteries reside

I am captured in the time and space between the here and now



Once again I stand

With only my solitary heart to guide me

Finding trust in such a fragile yet unstoppable force

Is much easier when matters such as this are emotionally unburdened



Once again I stand

Ready to choose the path that truly calls out to me

Never again choosing the dangerous direction of least resistance

As it is clear the most troublesome journey provides the greatest reward


One last time I stand alone

Prepared to embark on the next leg of my journey

Where it will lead me I haven’t any idea, yet it matters not

The road I choose has a bright light and warmth unimaginable waiting



Here now I walk alone

Nothing like the journeys I have known before

Something so much different giving purpose to my stride

The illumination on this glorious path provided by an identical heart



So I will never again stand alone

  1. I do love this piece but I want to point out that you haven’t been alone — at least not since we met!! 😉 I admire your courage to follow your heart. What lies down the path you have chosen? Happiness and fulfillment, my friend. Much love to you AND YOURS. ❤

    • Thank you Dana. Through thick and thin you have been and continue to be a dear friend. So glad we met. Me and MINE love and thank you very much.

  2. I was thinking last night that I missed seeing your posts and today you are here with words of strength and optimism. I wish you well on your journey and encouraged about my own. Wishing you well always. ~ k

    • Thank you Karin. It means a lot to me to be thought of. I am glad you enjoy my words and wish I was able to write more lately. Also glad you find encouragement relating to your own situation within my post. I wish you well also.

  3. Aaaaahhhhhh! You wrote the twist! I’m really going to have to tackle that skill. I’m jealous! I love this poem! 🙂

      • You and your Heart have been sorely missed by me. I hope you are back now and more often. Just so you know, in case you don’t see my last post, I am planning on taking off starting tomorow until Sunday. I am in need of R&R. I will be back with a smile on Monday! Now, again, that may change with the Wind, for I do follow my Heart, and if my Heart has me back here before Monday, then so be it. LOL 🙂 ❤
