can be a sign
a lion’s near. . .
if so, take care. . .

but sometimes
it is telling you,
you’re on the verge
of something new
that will take you
to the heart of you,

from where
you’ll find the strength to do
what, deep inside,
you’ve always wanted to,
what you, in fact were born to do,

the work that comes
when you are truly you,
which goes to grow
what’s really, deeply dear and true
in the world out there.

And in that case,
stare that fear
right in the face,
allow it to make friends with you,
so your soul may, at last, soar in the air,
just where it’s needed, everywhere
