A New World

A poem on leaving the nest

A tree with red, green and yellow leaves against a light blue background. Art: Annie Zhang.

a leap
embraced by
strain and pain.
insanity from anxiety,
thrown into the unknown.
incessant doubt shrouds
the mind. a maze of
cataclysmic beauty.
a haunting blessing.

a step
charged with
the light and fight
of a fiery mind.
dance through a constellation
of scintillating souls.
an opportunity to converge
at a blissful brilliance.
a family gathering.
