#OctPoWriMo5 – So Many Doors

“Zeal is a volcano, the peak of which the grass of indecisiveness does not grow.”

Khalil Ghibran

So many possibilities to choose from
Caught in the web of analysis paralysis
Which door will be right for me?
Each one presents an insightful experience
Curious to know what’s on the other side
Seeking a cure to my indecisiveness

Tick-Tock… Tick-tock…Tick-tock

Can I knock on each one and see if there’s any response?
Can I peek inside and if I don’t like it, can I just pop back out?
What if I took some time to hang out behind one door?
Contemplating the consequences of choosing one door over another
What’s worse is if I didn’t choose any door at all
As I’m pacing in chaotic, deep thought,
I hear a set of keys jingling in my pocket
Aha! Which doors can these open?

Tick-Tock… Tick-tock…Tick-tock

Time to walk confidently in the chosen path
Decision is transformed into a courageous undertaking
One that shapes my destiny and gives me inner peace
Freedom to learn from the outcomes outweighs the risk of regret
Future is built from committed present actions
Tenacity and attitude fuels purpose-filled grace

Day 5 – Bop
