My Greatest Hope; My Darkest Fear

My brightest hope; My darkest fear

Standing paralyzed as it draws near

The fun and games will blow away

At the start of that one ultimate life-changing day

And it seems to be coming so fast

A part of me begins to yearn for the past

With it rests all my bursting dreams

With it lies my deepest doubts threatening to rip at the seams

Excitement at what could be

Despair at what could be

It's the one thing no one can see

Every part of my aching soul awaits for the moment it all comes true

This growing dread telling me it'll take away everything I thought I knew

The possibilities are limitless and endless in that unknown place

The infinite failures toe the edge of shadows, hoping I'll fall out of grace

The future is so very near

And with it, my brightest hope and darkest fear

    It reminds me a little of the sentiment I was trying to capture in my poem?

    What do you think?

    • poetboy5454

      I agree, they both express the same emotion, one of apprehension.

      This is really pretty, I think we all have that anticipatory feeling for the future

        Thank you, it's definitely something everyone shares.

        May those brightest hopes outshine your darkest fears.

          A poetic line of your own!

          I can relate! Hopes and dreams when coming true are exciting yet scary at the same time.

          made me think of an interview
          that could go really well
          and lead to a job
          you've always wanted
          to do
          or go badly
          so sadly
          the days before are exciting
          but nauseating too
