Anticipation

I cannot help but wonder what lies ahead,

I wonder what is in store.

I put one foot in front of the other,

as there is some fear and confusion in my core.

A storm is coming offshore,

but the waves have yet to rise.

It is calm and quiet now,

but we are heading for a big surprise.

The anticipation for the storm is building.

It is real and it is heavy for us all.

I look out to the clouds on the horizon,

and I choose to stand up tall.

A bird flies by me, as carefree as can be,

It heads towards the sand at my back.

Why don’t I have that carefree feel?

I feel like any moment I could crack.

The storm is churning closer to the shore,

it will be here very soon.

But I choose to be positive,

so I take a deep breath and head towards the dune.

I will endure,

and I will be stronger on the other side.

But this anticipation is weighing on me,

and I know it will be a bumpy ride.

I cannot help but wander what lies ahead,

I wonder what it is store.

I choose to put one foot in front of the other;

I will be strong and courageous to the core.
