The Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge from the Go Dog Go Cafe is to write something with the phrases New Dawn/ New Day/ New Dreams. See link below:
Here is my attempt:
I stand on a precipice.
Before me the world, and all its opportunities, unfolds.
Dare I step forward into the unknown?
The fear of failure gives me pause.
It will stymie far more than my crepitus filled knee.
If only I can find the courage to take a step,
A new dawn full of new dreams awaits.
The prospect is breathtaking.
But so is my fear.
Surely, though, the fear that I am missing out on my destiny,
Failing to reach my full potential,
Should be greater than any fear of the unknown?
Yet I stand here paralysed.
Unable to move.
Unable to breath.
Until time takes its toll.
