Second Guesses Second Chances
by Michelle Gregory

I remember when I got up
and tried again like it was
Slowly, with expectations
comes hesitation
and then fear.

Now I don’t even try, in
case of failure.
The new status quo.

The path from one to the
other is long and winding
to confuse and blur.

The truth is you can step
back, follow the path,
become the person who
tries again.

You know I’m right.
Look past the mountain of fear.
