Misplaced Missive #46: 4

I’ve come to a crossroad.
3 paths before me,
My future unsure.
3 new ways to head towards
But do I have the courage
To move forward?

I could stay right here.
Ditch the what ifs and
Live guided by my fear.
I don’t want to be a coward,
But the future is so unclear.

To my left is what everyone
Wants from me, of me.
To do what’s anticipated,
Part of the majority.

To my right is a course,
I’d have to sacrifice everything for…
Even if it’d help me
Explore parts of self long ignored.

And straight ahead?
Is a life I can’t comprehend.
Something I’ve never wanted
But still an option.
