growing is tough

growing is tough, man!

that moment when you were discovered in your hiding ... that particular moment defines your propensity to engage your will or fall back on your cosy defenses

that excruciating moment when you have everything to lose ... and have no idea about the wins, yet somehow it feels like everything is at stake

that moment when you've been called out in what you used to consider your secret getaway

that moment when shame and guilt come to haunt you

that moment

it's in that moment when you either step up or shy away

when you look up or reinforce the ties that keep you stuck

you're either ready or not

it's as simple as a yes or a no backed up by an intention to keep you warm when you forget why you started.
