Falling Away

©2014 Louise Gallagher

I want to fall away from the edge of fear,
leaning into the unknown
releasing what was to make way for what I have
not yet discovered.

I want to skip this space of quiet
and leap into the doing
of what I’ve always done to avoid

I want to hurry into getting busy
at all the thins I know to do
to avoid being here, right now
in the silent presence
of the world awakening all around me.

There is no one way
to discover
the path.

There are many paths
to discover the way.

Stepping off the path I know
I discover
another way.
