The Dilemma


My heart feels compassion for them
My intellect struggles to understand them
My instincts are screaming at me to stay away

And every time my heart or my intellect propose a possible path for moving forward
My instincts rise up and stop them in their tracks


At the Crossroads

I’ve taken a step
and it seems like the right one
but I don’t know if I want to continue

Does this path lead to my increasing liberation?
A chance to feel my legs strong beneath my voice?

Or is the invitation I am responding to
a pretty lure
disguised as something I want
but that will only lead me to re-shackle myself?

I cannot see
I cannot see

And my lack of trust
competes with my sense of obligation
