I Will Keep Going Despite the Fear

So much fear

surrounds my heart

as I seem to be stumbling

through the wilderness

more than ever.

So many possibilities opening up

but everything so blank

at the same time.

The emptiness is exciting

as it is terrifying.

I know it’ll be scary,

I know it’ll be hard,

but I also know in so many ways

it can’t be half as hard

as what I’m leaving behind.

I don’t know where I’m going,

I don’t know what I’m doing,

but I’m just grateful

to finally be able

to look forward.


Not just surviving.

And while living is so damn hard.

I will do it.

I will do it for the person I left behind.

I will do it for myself because I have to.

Those years weren’t for nothing.

They were for this.

And now I have to keep going.


I don’t know.

Will it be scary?

It’ll be terrifying.

But I have to do it.

I have to know where this road goes

and the never-ending journey

I’m being taken on.

I have to keep moving forward,

for me.

Despite the fear,

I have to keep going.
