I walk this path alone yet I feel lurking in the shadows.
I don’t know what it is or what it wants but I know it’s there.
Is it behind me, in front of me, or walking with me just out of sight?
This is what has been following me all this time.
Not a person, or thing but a place.
I have finally come to my Crossroad and I must choose.
I have four choices before me.
I can go down either path but what awaits me? Or I can just turn around and go back to what I know.
That life I know all too well, I know there’s more.
I can stand here and do nothing but that doesn’t get me to where I need to be, lord knows I’ve waited long enough.
So many years have passed already.
Maybe it’s not which path I take as long as I don’t stay where I’m at or go backward.
I know what I’m missing.
I don’t trust my judgment and I’m afraid of what that might cause.
I must trust myself and know that this journey began for a reason.
I may not know why it started or why I’m still following it but I MUST believe that what’s ahead of me is what I need in my life.
My life may not be bad or really unhappy but I do know that the gaping hole I feel must be filled.
There is no wrong if when it’s done I have become what I knew I needed to be.
