No footing to stand on
No ground to claim
I am floating
into the ether of this life
so much fear and doubt
so much insecurity
but I will do as the masters tell me
push my heart out through my chest
and step toward it
how do I give myself fully?
without waiting for the other shoe?
perhaps I need to be barefoot now
feel the earth and sand dirt and rocks beneath me
there and yet not there
both solid ground and mercurial foothold
there is no answer to my hesitation
there is no guardian of my heart
to live I must surrender to the suffering
and suffer I will
but live I must
