Standing at the Threshold – Resisting the Force Pulling Me Back –

ThresholdStanding at the threshold –
Knowing I’ll never return –
Hesitating – Wishing
To know if I really want
To go –

Standing at the threshold –
Thinking I should
Turn around and run
The other way – but
I won’t –

I won’t because I have to
Find out – or else
I will regret
Forever my moment
Of doubt –

If only I could
Go both ways –
Try the unknown path –
If it disappoints me –
Go home –

But home won’t
Be there for me –
I must decide
Before the time
Runs out –

Standing at the threshold –
Resisting the force
Pulling me back –
Taking one step
Forward –

I feel the Wind at my back –
Pushing me onward –
Excitement lifts me up –
I’m floating – I’m flying –
I’m free~~~

    The path in your photo certainly beckons. Blessings to you.


    • I changed the photo because I couldn’t remember for sure where I got the other one. This is one I took myself on one of my walks. I don’t have to give myself credit. I agree that the first one was better. Ha. Blessings to you, Patti…
