Crossing The Line. 4/6/19 Read Count : 10

I’m walking a tightrope 
Balancing  is tough
Cross the line 
That too will be rough
I’ve been there before 
But conscience stepped in
Today l’m not sure 
If conscience would win
Torn in direction 
Today life can’t help
Should I speak to someone 
Or deal by myself 
Convictions are weakened
Is time running out
I once had the answers
Now there’s just doubt
I’m grasping at straws 
Wrong straw- we all pay
If I cross the line-
May do it anyway 
When need becomes magnets 
And force gets too strong 
The step I may take 
Confuses right and wrong 
Principles get hazy
Desperation moves in
Should I cross the line
I lose if I win
One foot is raised
The other’s on track
Should I step forward
There’s no going back 
Before this brief journey 
Start thinking real fast
If I cross that threshold 
I discard the past
What’s more important 
At this stage of the game 
To change my direction
Or keep things the same
If the answer were simple
This would be a blank page
It used to be easy
But not as this stage 
With all of my efforts 
And all of my time
I still face this dilemma 
Of crossing the line

  • I think all of us struggle with that, that moment where we have to decide which way we should go, which path we should take. At the end of the day, we just need to trust. Trust we're making the right choice and just go with what we choose.
