9.24.10

September 24, 2010

And so even though the tears seem to be coming,
and my heart seems to be racing, or stopping,
I don’t know what to do.

My life can change in an instant,
with a yes, or a no.
But I don’t know what to do.

Say yes, better for the long run,
who cares if you throw away one year of your life,
and it might not even work out in the end,
you won’t look bad and ask “What if?”
But I don’t know what to do.

Say no, life’s too short,
who cares if one of your biggest dreams won’t come true,
and you’re throwing away years of hard work,
you might not live till tomorrow.
But I don’t know what to do.

To swing this way or that,
I can’t seem to go with the wind,
everything seems to be bigger to me,
I’m just more cautious.
But I don’t know what to do.

So as the tears come and go
and I contemplate between
yes and no,
won’t you sit down next to me,
talk to me,
hold me,
so I’ll know what to do?

  7. Beautifully written. And speaking from experience, I’d go with “say yes”–if I’d said no, I would have had an oversized house and spent 60+ hours a week at a job, but by saying yes I was able to travel the world, buy a tiny cabin in the woods, and freelance from my home!


    • Wow, that’s amazing. Thank you.
