All the advice, procedures and tests are an inconvenience,

However, listen and learn from those with the experience.

 

All the information is at your finger tips,

Yet your mind plays tricks, and your decision slips.

 

Not wanting to show others how your hands tremble and shake,

You say everything is great, although you’re being incredibly fake.

 

Wishing you can just close your eyes and forget,

You seek a decision you won’t regret.

 

Why are decisions so tough?

Could it be we are not ready enough?

How to know this is the course that was laid out,

Never allowing for self doubt?

 

In your defense the decisions we make can come at an expense,

But the alternative doesn’t allow you time to sit on the fence.

So real, this one made me truly think about life and my part in it, and yes I may not have made the final decision but at least I am looking at the question.

Changes are difficult...when you have a choice and when you don't they are just plain frightening. Great write, something to think about.
Warmth and Love to you, Carin' Spirit

Very clever write. Peeps are scared to be human.
Yet we learn heaps more from failure than quick success.
