And suddenly the world shifted
Not in any way catastrophic
Rather, I was here – and –
suddenly I was on the other side.
Different view, different environment
Seeing a completely different picture
But complementary and linked.
And the choice was in that moment
Walk this way in this new place
Leave everything else behind
But fear and hesitation pulled at me
And I found myself back
Where I knew the lay of the land
Where all the uncomfortableness
Secure feelings within my own prison.
