Haiku for You

Be gentle with me.
I want to do the right thing,
And I am afraid.

Newly born woman,
Somehow already of age,
Should have known better.

With the fog lifted
Clarity hurts bitterly.
Better luck next time.

Am I courageous
Enough to do the right thing?
The mystery knows.

It's in the doing
That I might find a playful
Song that heals my heart.

All signs point to yes,
And yet my fear says "not now."
Love can beat my fear.
