A poem about standing on the threshold to a new life…

You’re here, you’ve arrived, are you ready?
We never think we are and yet we linger,
knuckles poised and toes upon the mat.

Your shaking exhalation tells a story.
Breathe and I will hear it with my heart,
through the crashing of the words you do not have,
the waterfall.
