Citadel

When fear infects your every cell,
Retreat into your citadel,
But only for a moment’s length,
To gather all your inner strength,
To sharpen focus, deepen breath,
To mourn your passing moment’s death,
To celebrate the birth anew –
Another moment, another you –
And, with composure, saunter out
Despite the fear, despite the doubt.
