A Leap of Faith

A LEap of Faith

Notoriously, her own worst enemy

Riddled with ongoing insecurities

I can’t

I’m not good enough

What a farce

She chides

Frozen in self-doubt

A hindrance no doubt

She wavers

Dizzyingly on the edge

Dangling on the precipice

Of change

Clashing affirmations and negations

A powerful mental tide

I can’t

You can

Just do it

A falter, toes meet ledge

Heart drumming

Eyes close

A spiritual soar

A leap of faith

Finally, success
