The tiny fragments of my happiness scatter
As my mind combs through millions of possibilities
The negativity that could jump up at my door
As I step out my room
Onto the roads of uncertainty I go
Into the shoes of youth I step
My life stares me in my eyes
Reflecting the mind of Lord Janus
It asks me to choose
Between luxury and a rush of adrenaline
Between short work hours and whole days outside my haven
An impossible choice precedes me
One traps me within and one sets me free.
I make my choice one day
I choose to unfurl my wings and fly
Fear doesn’t leave me on the day in question
It grows in me even more
What if my wings get caught in a branch?
What if the wind takes me to a place where I don’t belong?
What if I get lost in the large and wide world?
What if I lose sight of the strings that tie me to my home?
Happiness thrives rapidly, no doubt
But with all the freedom I choose
Comes the heavy burden of a price
