! Trapped !

Rating: 3.1
Deep within a cell of my own making,
The door remains unlocked -
I have but to open it;
Refuge from the world outside my door,
From the trappings of my mind -
The choice is mine;

Self-preservation holds me prisoner,
No shackles bind me here -
Yet here I stay;

Outside the world is scarey beautiful,
Safely predictable within -
What could it hurt?

Let me push that boundary just a little,
Fresh and sweet the air -
Through that open door.

Decisions, decisions, decisions... This is a personal and finely crafted inquiry into new beginnings and the courage that must be gathered in order to confront change. You're right. It's 'easier' to stay put and ride the familiar turntable and yet the prospect of a new direction must always beckon tantalizingly. This is a deeply personal poem, with a theme that all of us near retirement must relate to with mixed feelings. Your poetry has bright eyes Linda. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
