As the Earth prepares to awaken from its winter slumber,
I feel my soul calling for transformation.
My body, too long in the comfort of inaction,
Calls to be set free to fly.
My mind and heart, too long held back with fear of failure- or success?-
Are ready to sing again.
I tell myself,
The first step is the hardest one,
As I step into the abyss of hope.
