Out of the shadows

IMG_20160322_200359[1]
Trust
is blind
- least, it can see
one step ahead
but not more.
It is very
near-sighted,
but its sight is
enough.

It is not fear.
Fear is its
shadow,
that always
hovers
nearby.
Fear shudders
at uncertainty,
concocting
all manner
of strategies
to dissipate it.

Trust walks
hand in hand
with
faith.
She has confidence
in all your
resources
and abilities.
Faith believes
that you will
suffice,
whatever comes your way.

Fear's cousin is
anxiousness.
She worries
that you will not
be enough,
that you won't
be able to
make it alone.
Best look to
someone else,
for something else
to do it for you.

Trust walks
slowly
into uncertainty.
The future
will be alright
because
you are there -
and you are
enough.

I choose 
to come out
of the shadows.
