"When I Let Go Of What I Am, I Become What I Might Be"

I float on the face of the ocean
when I let go of the fear to drown.
I reach the apex of a mountain
when I choose to look ahead
removing the rope of doubt.
I let myself be by being me-
created, nurtured and sustained
by courage, faith, hope and love.
