Conflicting voices

In any new situation,
whether social or artistic,
there are lots of voices
clamoring within:
the one that leaps with joy,
the one imprisoned by fear,
the vulnerable child,
the lazy one whose very laxity
stokes and fires the guns of terror,
and over all
the one who watches,
evaluating, waiting,
judging as she observes.
