The Winds Of Change Howl

Standing on the edge
Poised on the precipice
As the old world
      ...my old life
Falls away into the dust; it is no more

Forward is the only real choice
But so dark
So dim
So full of uncertainty
Fear of the unknown freezes me
What is lurking in those swirling mists
Mist-eries
Ghosts of past, present, future
And the winds of change howl

My past is gone but I can't see a path
Only the screaming uncertianty
And fear!
Step forward into that mist?
But what if I fall?
Break a bone?
My neck?
My heart?

I can't!
I won't!
I must!

Terrified I leap
Into the Future
And the winds of change howl

Bearing me into my destiny
