firewalk (day 108)

i once walked on fire
hot coals tickled my bare feet
warm popcorn under my toes

back then i had no children,
no heartbreak or great loss
nor a deep love to define me

ash covered the soles of my feet
as i walked past who i was
and stepped into who i’d become

i faced my fears and learned
fear can walk beside me,
together we can grow strong.
