Poetic Journey in Personal Discovery

Double Dutch…


Steady revolutions,
Roped complexity.
Standing on the sideline,
Of a future you can’t see.

Do you jump in?
Do you chance entanglement?
How long do you stare,
Into the grounded firmament?

Pain in failure,
Pride and bodily woes.
Yet, never proceeding forward,
You’re sure to never know.

The longer you watch,
The longer you wait,
The more doubt can take root,
Strengthened chains, your fate.

So, pause to strategize,
Then, with courage leap.
You may face complications,
Step back, restart, reject defeat!
