Flash Friday 55: July 15, 2011

Growing Pains

is today the day
I run away
filled with fear,
with worrisome strife?

or do I face
that deep, dark place
detracting from a
tranquil life?

standing ground
seems so sound
though there’s always
a price to be paid

That price is plain
for it’s emotional pain
upon which
spiritual groundwork is laid

Difficult choices we are faced with. Hope you make the right choice. I have always maintained that whatever choice you make, IS the right one.

Standing your ground seems like a good plan for facing fears head on...

there seems to be pain in "growing", for sure. Sometimes we find the "dragons in the dark" are not quite so scary when we shine light on them,,,

Powerful last lines in this 55. Just fantastic and true.

I say, roll up like a hedgehog, hold your breath and tumble down through it til you come out the other side. Then carefully pull off the thorns and jaggers afterward. But that's me.
