Caution

The opening of oneís heart is a truly scary undertaking.
 
This instinct to protect what was once shattered tends to cause a quiver of fear shooting through my veins.
 
Wishing to retreat to the safety of my solitude, so very tempting.
 
Hard fought battles to regain my former self seemed in peril by one insignificant happenstance.
 
I find my mind straying to thoughts of a new journey in a world completely foreign to my last.
 
Is the structure built from the rubbles of my past solid enough to withstand the possibilities of an uncertain future?
 
My thoughts are racing but in an interesting new direction, itís freighting with how quickly the mind creates new pathways.
 
I was stuck for so long by the inhumanity of one and the ghost of another.
 
Missteps have been made while traversing the uneven path towards the destiny that awaits me.  
 
The future is very much unknown but my freedom from past burdens has finally arrived.
 
What does one do when all that was dreamt has finally come to fruition? I have no idea, but for once Iím not scared to find out.
