Looking Out the Door

Meandering through life
without any ambition,
hoping nothing arises to put you
in an awkward position.

You can’t bear to think
of being in the spotlight,
the thought of people scrutinizing you
fills you with fright.

You were happy to remain
in the shadows,
out of sight and out of mind
you were never one to impose.

As you have gotten older
the more insecure you have become,
looking back on your life
and all the things you haven’t done.

A feeling of regret
that wasn’t there before
now seems to get stronger
every day you look out your door.
