Growth (L)edge

I am walking a thin line, the light’s not quite bright and my surroundings are unclear in this blurry twilight.

I make careful footsteps as I tread onwards and up, but I honestly can’t tell if my terrain will buckle or not.

I know I’m going upwards, of that I have proof as the pebbles roll downwards under my steps gone aloof.

But what am I treading on? Is it a precipice or a ledge? My churning gut tells me it might just be my growth’s edge.

You know what I’m speaking of: it’s that wobble-inducing place of dangerous opportunities that are so daunting to face.

But here is my question, the one that jolts me awake: is what I’m feeling truly growth or a cloaked up mistake?

As I make my decisions and course my path day by day, I get lightheaded and dizzy, a vertigo of dismay.

Is the unease that I feel me growing out of my shell? Or fear of the splatter I remember from when I last fell?

This vertigo may likely be fear of falling and failing and of my dreams not availing, as I plummet spectacularly.

But what if…what if… if it’s not fear directing the show, rather a wish to push off and fly, trusting my wings have grown.

Look. I don’t know where I got them, the insecurities and self-doubt. But I am fed up with the hassle of dragging them about.

All I want is to love well, live well, by beauty be astounded and leave the world I was born in much better than I found it.

My heels are already raised, I am about to ascend. I kiss the doubts goodbye and to my wings I tend.

I love well, I live well, I make light in this world. The time has come to BE and not just “could, should, would”.
