Moving with the fear

I am terrified.

I am terrified of this new adventure.

I am terrified that I have nothing to offer anyone.

I am terrified that my art and my words are

meaningless.

Worthless to anyone but me.

These are old monsters.

Strong. Ancient. Deep.

These fears don’t want to let me put myself out there.

These fears tell me that the water is too deep; that I’ll drown.

But here I am.

Jumping in anyways.
