No Regrets

No Regrets

Lauren Taub Cohen

Gusts of self-doubt swirl

within my cavernous mind

and the thick sludge of stagnancy

weighs heavily upon my heart.

Did I think it would be easier?

Well, yes, just a bit.

How else could I have found the courage

to escape the deadening drag of inertia

and tear into the unknown

with only the clarity of intent

to light the way?
