Capes of Promise

So confident is our promise,
that it drapes over our shoulders,
pushing us forward and towards
what we aren’t always ready for.

Its daunting threads
practically prickle against our heads,
bringing us shivers as they seem to deliver
us to the cusp of our dreams.

And as our promise flaps behind us in the breeze,
we begin to believe,
slowly edging along to where we belong,
as we look upward and onward to a braver dawn.
