what most often stops me
from achieving freedom
is my tendency to be caught up
in fears and expectations
about what I ought or should be.
My usual automatic responses
tie me down and inhibit me
from exploring new areas of growth.
I ask and pray for a greater sense
of inner freedom and that
I might reach the fresh and challenging
possibilities that You, O God,
want me to realize.
