Discovering Strength Through Vulnerability

Stay

Don’t leave.

Stay.

If you said you’ll stay,

Stay.

 

Give yourself the time

of another sunrise.

Permit your courage and resolution

to catch up. They may be slow,

but they are steadfast.

 

Let the desire of flight

take your mind to a place

in your heart

where you know you’re safe.

 

Let your winged feet flap

in your imagination,

dreaming the worst,

and knowing you’ll survive.

 

You will survive.

 

For now, don’t leave.

Stay.

If you said you’ll stay,

Stay.

 

Give yourself the time

of another sunrise

and watch your fears melt

with the morning dew.

 

Perspective only comes

with patience,

and there’s always

a net

beneath the airborne.
