Flash Fiction: Tools

Empty auditorium

I wasn’t ready.

Not even close.

The expansive auditorium that seemed to unfold in front of me was a blinding truth that even with all the tools and hours of preparation, I couldn’t make it.

I wouldn’t make it.

Deep in my gut I knew there was always going to be someone better.

Stronger.

Smarter.

More rehearsed, talented and driven.

Perhaps my truth is I am failure waiting to happen.

Taking the first step of a journey doomed to end poorly is impossible.

I didn’t know if I would move forward.

All I knew I was that I wasn’t ready

  1. This is where a sip of wine is required beforehand. ;-)
    Unexpected use of flash word. Excellent.

  2. Unexpected use, perfect. How often I have felt exactly this.
