I close my eyes.
Take a deep breath.
Turn around.

Walk away.

I wonder,
How many times in my life
I failed to do just that?

Turn from the direction I’m heading
To take another path.

With open eyes,
Fear too often seeps in.

When I close them,
A sense of calm creeps in.

Yet blind I risk
Losing my way.

Taking a path
From which my mind
Wants to stray.

One path is known.
The other requires faith.

And what becomes of me
Depends on which path
I choose to take.
