At the very brink, staring into the abyss,
With the shadows dark and filled with a hiss,
The end seeming inevitable,
That’s when I heard them ringing, in my ears and thundering in my heart.
“Cast your fears aside and unburden your soul,
This is but a phase you’ve yet to overcome.
Stand firm and tall and be strong.”
As I welcomed these words, my ascent was uncontested
With them, I now look at approaching confrontations and say;
I dare you to try!
