Managing Hesitation

     by Emily Calvo


It doesn’t matter how deep the water

if it’s over your head.


It doesn’t matter how far the shore

if it’s out of sight.


It only matters that

you walk to the end of the pier

with your plethora of fears

like pebbles in your shoes

Fling them into the sea and watch

how small they appear

Against the horizon

How the whitecaps

drown the sound

of touching water

How limited

their power

as they



It only matters

that you

feel free to




How We Move When Managing Hesitation
