Riding A Tiger

On face a sham normalcy but core filled with dread
At very cusp of no return can't help but go ahead

All deemed as pushover how ended up being otherwise
None other can fault, since caught in my own devise

The efforts painstaking & a well thought over intent
Ended in such an imbroglio, that no one could prevent

Tackled many a monster, little rogue just can't tame
With peculiar nuances, time & again which try inflame

Kind of a proverbial tiger, not know if to jump or ride
Head tells to just let go, but heart says for time bide
