Stepping into the great unknown (poem)

I wrote this piece a few weeks ago in the thick of making a decision on my what’s next. There is a tug between the heart and mind. There is no visible path. There is no concrete plan to chase after a dream. All I’m certain of is uncertainties.


Stepping Into The Great Unknown

I’m stepping into the unknown
What is ahead?
What lies beyond that door?
I wouldn’t have any idea
from now on

Yet, the openness beyond that door
Beckoning me
to say goodbye to what was before

Am I doing what’s right?
Would this keep me up at night?
Is God in?
Have I asked deep enough within?

God, let this be right
Let this be worth the fight
To take the risk
when the visibility of the future
is shrouded like the darkness of night.
