bike

it’s like

when you first learn

to ride a bike

at first, it feels scary, the wobble beneath you

you’re afraid

to pull your legs up,

afraid to trust

your balance

and when you finally get the courage up

to put your feet on those pedals

move forward

everything becomes an obstacle

panic becomes your world

every pebble, weed patch

spells ruin

But

you ride

and one day,

you realize you are coasting

you throw your hands to the sky and

Lean Back.
