It’s such a big step. Am I ready, I don’t know?
Such a big step out into the unknown
For what do I really know about writing?
Won’t I be ridiculed, laughed at, slighted?
So many fears and worries surround
I have few answers and questions abound
I’ll ask left and right and do my research
But who can tell me if I’m ready at last?
The weather is bright but my mood is confused
One second joyful, excited enthused
Next I feel so unsure what to do
Who can say if this path leads me true?
I’ll do my research, find out where it leads
Each step will be measured, all warnings I’ll heed
I know it won’t be easy, this winding road
But I know I’m not alone, you lighten my load
There are people to inspire me and people who’ve been there
People to encourage and those who tell me to beware
The warnings and the advice, the compliments and care
I’ll pack them all for my journey to who knows where
