We all must encounter the things that we fear
like a looming cloud of agony
floating above, holding our tears.
It’s all just a matter of when and how
and who will be there to help us through it
when we find ourselves taking a bow.
breathing in this new kind of air
and kissing the feet of our deepest demons
as we arise in either glory or despair.
