Day 19: Choosing Again

I twirl at the seam

between this world and that,

trusting goodness to carry me.

My shoes may splinter,

but I have to believe

it is possible to live there.

I have to look at my teachers

not as distant demi-gods,

but as echoes of who I might become.

I have to believe

I was born to give light

where shine is covered in dust.

I have to believe

I can be in brief moments

that brave, that kind.

It’s what takes my mind

from the deep abyss

off the edge of

this precipitous dance.
