Stephanie (nerdatlas) | 279 comments So, in Myths and Legends Class we are talking abou the Hero's journey, which involves the ultimate challenge: the abyss. This challenge of all challenges usually requires the hero to conquer their greatest fear. And the hero's journey is always reminiscent of our own experiences and challenges in day to day life. So I wrote about my abyss. enjoy.

An open crevice, like
A monster’s gaping maw
Waiting, beckoning
To swallow me whole.

I stand at the edge
Alone. Afraid.
The darkness
Echoes below.

I want to walk away.
Like I always have.
Ignore it until it goes away.
But it never does.

So here I am.
Preparing to take the leap
I’ve dreaded since birth.
To conquer my fear.

Before I do, to save myself
I must remind myself
That I am never, never

Samantha | 69 comments wow! that's really good! but you might want to use
I want to walk a different way
instead of using the word away twice in one stanza. you could also find another word for myself but thats harder.
