‘Tis the night before my new life begins.
What will happen as the new day emerges,
Fear, regret, or earnest expectations?
“Nothing ventured, nothing gained:” or just futile expectations,
While a scenario of possible failure begins.
Through the clutter of thoughts, hope emerges.
Confidence of a bright future emerges,
Making me a slave to raised expectations.
A smirk, a smile, a new expression on my face begins.
My new life begins, emerges, with glorious expectations.
Inspiration: This poetic piece describes anticipation that we all feel when embarking on new endeavors; the Christian remains confident because of Christ’s presence. Based upon Philippians 1:6 – “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.” ~TRP~
