Safety Net

Out in this world without the aid

of a safety net,

the fear of failure has me

in a cold sweat.

I am taking baby steps in case

I might fall,

there are too many obstacles

always on call.

My breathing is unsteady

and brisk,

I don’t know whether I am ready

to take this risk.

I have lost count of the times

I’ve tried to break free

only to fail and end up

back on my knees.

But maybe this is the time

I will survive,

to venture out into the sunshine

and feel like I am alive.
