My time has come and the ball's in my court.
For as long as I can remember I have sat back and let people and circumstances control me, hold me back, and keep me from reaching my goals, reaching my potential.
All because of fear, that beast that holds us all back, keeping us in the caves, in the dark, fearful of reaching out for the light, the sun, the stars and the moon.
After all, they are all just fairy tales, too breathtaking to be true, how could we ever reach out and touch the stars, when we know how bad things can truly be?
Yes, fairy tales are legends, stories to help us get through the night and into the morning, but can’t I grasp onto the dream, holding on tight, so that I can live it forever, can’t I sit on the moon with a fishing pole in my hand as I try to catch all my wishes in the milk way?
I will overcome my demons, as I step up to the plate, because as they say, as long as I keep my eyes on the ball, I will be able to do whatever I put my mind to, and I will be in control of my own destiny.
