Taking a leap of faith ..

“Take no risk son”

Mother said

“I fear for you

from a deceitful fate”


The heat under my feet

The heaviness of the stillness

Itching on my sole

.. go..don’t wait ..


and behind these hills

and the unsettled clouds

Lies the temptation

Of a dream I create


So I depart

the recitation of certainty

and the suffocation of boredom

the overweight and

gruelling waste


With a baby’s shaky feet

and a gritty heart

Fearless and doubtless

With tiny steps or even a mighty fall


Life is certainly a prize for

A leap of faith

  1. Oh wonderful wise and lovely words ~ your enthusiasm is almost contagious here… dear Tarek.

    Yes — that restlessness, the calling — willingness to take the leap – the risk – and embrace the dream… And I will share with you one of my favorite quotes, one I always recited to my girls while they were growing up (my little one revolved her valedictorian graduation speech around it):

    “If you do follow your bliss you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be.”
    ― Joseph Campbell

    I am hoping your charming illustration and poem represents something very wonderful for you — a leap taken and a dream realized…. Much Love ~ R
