BELIEF A LITTLE BIT AHEAD

Sometimes your belief
only needs to be
a little bit ahead of you. . .

so that its sibling disbelief
will not so long keep you where you are
that belief flies so far ahead
that the dreams you want to wake
stay shut-eyed in their long-held bed,

and your belief goes fast and far
to the point where
it’s not content to just be there
to be a steady friend for you–

it’s up and gone
to journey forth
where your brilliant path has led,
but walks no longer at your side–

indeed,
it is so bold and cold,
it ventures on
instead
of you.
