Julia D'Amora

A still morning.

I sit and ponder.

What will this dawn bring to pass?

Breath enough for another day?

What shall I do with this chance?

Shall I create or destroy?

Shall I love or hate?

Shall I look within?

Shall I look without?

All this dances on my fingertips.

Free will.

The currency to spend today.

I pray for courage. 

Is it time to give it all away?
