I seem to have it all together; I don’t.
I seem to be above it all; I am not.
I am terrified.
I am out of control.
I want to hide from it all.
I want to take all my provisions and burrow into an airtight bunker, away from you all.
But I won’t.
I will live confidently despite being afraid.
Though petrified, I will move forward.
For these challenging moments are part of life.
