My whole life I've been afraid.
Of the dark, of the unknown, of life in general.
This has made me become who I am.
Always being quieter than others.
At least at first.
Looking within to see the what & how of doing.
When I was young, I would go for walks in the woods.
The sounds of birds and the cracking of trees made me feel real.
To this day, I still enjoy a slow walk.
Even if my old bones can't go far.
I try to get out and about for a few moments.
Looking always upward to the sky.
Be it cloudy or blue.
I'm there .. looking ... enjoying.
So, being afraid of the unknown has done me no wrong.
I like being me.
This quiet lady who enjoys birds.
And, even on those days when I can't take walks
I can imagine what it was like when I did.
