I almost made it to the

Fork in the road,

Ready to embark on the uncharted path.

From a distance, it looks dark

Taking a sudden bend

Where the end cannot be seen.

This time, I am determined

Not to allow doubts

Nor expectations

Or Ego

Cloud my choice.

Just as I resolve to

Take the final step,

Once again, I hesitate.

There’s no flurry

Of interception

Nor a lack of logic.

The heart is calm

And responds to a whisper

In the quiet.

“The promise, my girl

Weren’t you always here

For the promise?”

I peek over my shoulder

And there it is.

Strewn amidst the shattered pieces

Is the dim flickering light,

The one lit decades ago

As a roaring, vibrant fire.

And I know that until the day

The light fully dies,

Stomped on and berated,

Murdered by all the hands that

Set it alight,

I cannot step over

This threshold.

I turn back on the road,

Finding a perch

Within the wreckage.

As the pieces slowly rot

I stare quietly at the light,

Waiting for the wind

To come in as reprieve.
