It’s all from within

Inspiration comes from seeing the top of the mountain I wish to climb

Confidence is knowing I can climb it.

I realize that the mountain is out there AND in my mind.

I can easily ascend the one in my head and so the trek begins,

Achievement of my grandest dreams is summoned when I decide

that I do not have to fly like an eagle to perch upon the crest

but better if I walk as human, with gratitude for each step.

It is from within that I reach out, step out, and be who I am

It is from within I see my direction and it is from inside

the field which embraces my waiting dreams…

I choose to go forward, standing on the edge, leaning into the winds of change.

A believer in Lifelong Learning and Collaborative Wisdom, remembering Who I AM through essay, story, and poetry. Listening for narratives that nurture Life.
