At the Crossroads of Life

 

I’m standing at the crossroads of my life

Wondering which path before me

Is the right one

.

They all look the same

There is no visible sign

Separating one from the other

.

And yet, I must make a choice

I cannot stay here

Dithering forever

.

Indecision rules my heart

Confusion clouds my mind

Anxiety rises; I don’t know what to do

.

Tears well up in my eyes

I’m lost and lacking direction

My life, a roadmap of mistakes

.

Past failures begin to take hold

When a sudden strong breeze shifts my perception:

What’s been has gone; start afresh

.

And that, I decide

Is what I’ll do
