choice.

Cuddled under my cot,

Here ,I dwell in murk,

Did shades of darkness?

induce tenebrosity ,

I wonder.

 

there it stood,

at a palpable distance,

As my curtains drawl up,

smirking at me ,

the endless possibilities,

which I crave to attain,

 

but wrangled in inner battles,

confined to my comfort zone,

beneath the walls of self doubt,

what did I do?

other than incarcerate my soul.

 

all it takes is choice.

 

whether to resume my nap,

as a reticent observer ,

when my dreams shatter.

 

or to unfurl my wings,

and fly up to my destiny.

 

choices are perhaps strenuous,

a stealthy nuisance,

with uncertainty embedded…

      3. you know, true expression of feelings often get diluted with a planned plot. ‘partial introvert’ – nice one
