Departure Time


Dear Self-Doubt,


You have served me well for quite a while.

You’ve kept me in check while I thought of taking a  step

and asked me 432 times if I was sure I was enough.

Through  the  challenges, you’ve been my loyal filter of what is possible and what dreams need to be left aside.

I thank you, my constant companion, for your careful watch.

I will now let you travel far.

Go find new vistas, enjoy,

get some rest for a while!

I have some dreams to take care of

and my backpack is too tiny 

to carry you with me this time around.


With love

Paulina Julian
