Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway

Smouldering tongues of fire
Hot embers to be conquered

Heysel exhibition grounds

I must not fail

Prove my courage
No limits
No boundaries
Prove my inner strength

Behind three Hassidics
On the eve of The Sabbath
Waiting like Moses
The parting of the waters

'If they can do it
So can I'
Says my inner voice

A strength comes over me
I can
I can

As if on auto-pilot
Marching forward with purpose
I look back
Seeing glowing pathway

Being hugged and

'That's it?'
Say I
Through my tears
