Don’t look back over your shoulder.
Let the memories fill you with laughter.
At first a trickle,
Glistening as they forge their own path
Across your cheeks,
Which burn with emotion.
As though that invisible hand is against your chest
Oh it feels warm
And so inviting.
You take one more step
Every sinew screaming
Racked with emotion almost uncontrollable
You pass through the terror
Into a new world.
