What holds me back?

by Leandra K Brossard

What holds me back?
No friend of mine,
nor experience I have ever known.

What holds me back?
No one I know,
nor interference I'd expect.

What holds me back?
When by all rights
I should be racing, halfway there?

What holds me back,
I see it glisten
my one hope, a distant speck..

What holds me back?
What seems nothing, is not so.
What holds me back?
Only my heart's fear to go.
