Cautious

When it came to the major decisions

in my life I hesitated

I always missed opportunities

and was left feeling frustrated.

I was never brave enough

to take a step into the unknown

preferring to stick to the path

I had already being shown.

Cautious to the point

that everything became routine

left me to regret missing

the sights I could have seen

if only I had raised my head

up off the floor

and took a deep breath

as I stepped outside my door.
