Potentiating Potential

Those times that I cry -without knowing why, are a beckoning from buried pieces of myself.


Those leaky fears that trickle into my imagination: A stable tree, rooted in anxiety. 

All can go wrong, but what will happen - knows no morals. It is, as it is. 


My tears will bellow just the same. Those ghostly terrors won’t vanish because I command; they will survive inside me just as history prevails from the past. 


A fear is as unchanging, and ruthless as seasonal storms - and should be approached with grounded certainty: it will always exist. 


Can I transcend what scares me? 

Can I accept, and mourn for what hasn’t - but might happen?

 Will I unbury my mind from these mounds of fright, that paralyze me in my quest for freedom? 


I write my memoir - I drive this ship of fragile fruition - whether I be frozen or thawed from fear - I am still captain.


 Perhaps what ails me most is the weight of my control. While it is an entirely formless entity - it is simultaneously all I’ll ever own: my story. 


And who can kneel in acceptance that they are afraid of themselves, their potential, but also their cowardice to honestly face it? 


Who am I to believe in myself? And who am I to waste away in futile self-destruction?


 Who am I but a tangled bunch of worry, hanging by thousands of threads of opportunity? 


Who am I - experiences layered in complex revelations , soon to be lost if not inscribed into words? 


Who is anyone, really?
