One Day, Soon, I Will Be There

Posted: October 28, 2020

“Eclectic, interesting…will fill you with hope and resolve!” – Pick up our new short story collection, Women.Mutiny

While I stand looking at the mountain
scared to take a step
lest I fall.

I see people on the Tip
waving at me
yelling it was easy.

I see people
half way through
smiling and giving
me a look of assurance.

I see people who
just walk past me
taking the leap
without any fear.

I muster courage
take some baby steps
then just stay put
some days.

But I know,
the deep desire
raging within,
will be my fuel
and I will reach the pinnacle

One day
soon
very soon.
