On looking down when stepping down

With each step could be
a breath;
internal resonance --
a spirit moving in and taking hold...
But no. There's just
this conscious,
controlled watching: a desire
to keep from tripping over
those long, unwieldy trains of thought,
to keep my balance
or to avoid
stepping in it --
whatever "it" may be...

When will I learn to trust
and keep my heart and eyes
trained on you?
