For every moment

For every moment
I think I cannot face,
I can.

This ailment
of anticipation
delivers a shadow.

For every day
I think I cannot,
I do.

Contradictions found
where fear lurks
until truth revealed.

For every person
I dare not confront,
I can.

My eyes cannot see
and my thoughts
are no friend.

In every way
I believe I cannot,
I will.

In everything I do
I become,
for nothing to fear

knowing who I am.

Just A Second

It takes just a second,
to reflect;
one minute,
to change.

One breath,
to stop everything;
one word,
to start singing.

With a blink of the eye,
you could miss it;
close your eyes,
you’ll see it.

It takes just one step,
to move;
one after the other,
be on your way.

With just a small amount of space,
you’ll find your ground;
in a finite world,
anything’s possible.

Make a decision,
take a chance;
life’s a series of accidents –
win and lose!
