This Beginning

This day, this beginning
sings of possibilities
and I rush to greet them.
Just as the sun anxiously awaits the dawn,
so I have eagerly anticipated
this day, this beginning.

Reaching for the doorknob to fling open
this day, this beginning,
I pause—
Is that a cloud on the horizon,

a potential what-if,
a snag in the perfection?

It may not work as I had anticipated,
this day, this beginning,
this new possibility.
There is a fear here—no, several fears

that I was avoiding,
dreading, denying.

Be with me, I can only ask,
in this day, this beginning,
to reassure me.
Surround me with confidence,
instill your strength within me,
bless me and guide me in
this day, this beginning.
