I jumped up, I grasped and clutched.
Alas! Doubt invaded, my feet lurched.
My hand faltered, hovered near the goal
But unsure, I questioned my own role.
“Do I deserve it, or do I not?” I thought
Negativity & pessimism in my mind fought.
My beclouded brain got more befuddled,
I clutched at my hair, completely addled.
But then clarity came, a ray of optimism
From my heart & overruled my brain’s schism
I steadied myself, held onto my belief,
I felt more confident, oh! What a relief.
I reached out and grabbed it with my hand
Nerves steadied, smiling, I took a stand.
I resolved, no more fear, ruing or backward glances
We must take & hold onto these second chances
