No knowing how
I am afraid of choosing
And of not choosing
Of being wrong
And of being right
I am afraid of being drawn down the messiest path
And even more terrified of walking the easiest one
But I do not feel all that afraid
I feel alive
I feel awake
I feel the poignancy of this moment, the possibilities shifting,
the temporary balance of these scales
I feel the question mark of the future and know it is not my place
The work I do now will determine what replaces it, but there is no knowing how.
