The Swarm


The swarm of butterflies in her stomach was fighting to escape.  If it did escape she could not be responsible for the outcome.  Holding all the anxiety inside was the easy part.  She could handle the inner terror and relentless pain.  What she could not handle was showing her weakness.  She was supposed to have faith.  She was  supposed to trust in her path and know that God has her back.  Today however it was almost too much.  To let the swarm of pain and anxiety escape across her lips would mean words she could not take back.  Her head is not clear.  Her mind is not her own.  The swarm has taken over her entire being and with her last thread of hope she needs to find the strength to rise above.  To silence the swarm. To believe.

Doubt


She was filled with doubt.
It was as if she questioned whether the sun would rise.
To go back in time would be to re-learn the lesson.
To fear the unknown would be to roll the dice on her own fate.
But how?  How to live here in this moment and see the world for what it is?
No amount of fear or doubt will change what is to come.
So breathe easy darling,
There is no doubt that you are exactly as you are supposed to be.
