Ripples of peace flowed through my body and mind,
As I pondered my life in that dark night of the soul.
A new awakening entered as I released years of fear,
And for the first time in a long time, I felt truly whole.
I knew I had to find ways to be courageous and brave,
To have a dreaded vis-a-vis with my all of my fears.
So, with coherent thought, I took a trip to the Alps,
Because my vow to overcome my terrors was in arrears.
One day, I found strength that was hidden inside of me,
And with my heart trembling, I traveled to the very top.
Up there, the beauty of the place saved me in ways unseen,
For I started traveling the world, and I have never stopped.
True story of the time I went to Geneva, Switzerland alone, and decided to try to overcome my fear of heights that had kept me from enjoying amazing scenery when I traveled.
