Warning Signs

Hairs raising.
Stomach turning.
Goosebumps growing.
Sweat trickling.
Heart pounding.
Mind racing. 

I should have followed my gut.
I should have followed my instincts.
I should have listened to my feelings.


These weren't feelings of any excitement.
They weren't just butterflies in my stomach.
They weren't the jitters from my unknown anxieties.

These were my warning signs.
