The First Step

When the view seems hazy

When my feet is stuck in the marshy land

When I can no more hear the chirping of my inner voice

When recklessness swishes through my mind

And in between the trees there are abundant paths awaiting,

 Listening for the sound of my footsteps

When control is thrust at me

But feet are still stuck in murky waters

When hands shake with indecision

And there plays a fierce battle between the two wills within me

Knowing the way yet shacking myself down

Not a step I have taken and my the battle time draws to a close

Tomorrow might be my day

But today I find my will fighting against it self

Being rash is not my way

But I have to take the first step

How can I break free?

I look at my reflection, my only hope for any solace

And I find a pair of deep disturbed eyes staring back

Startled is the reflection at the involuntary battles being played in the head,

You are the culprit, it says

The marshy land is all you’re making

Clutch at your will, nudge it and then push it into the unknown terrain

Take that first step, say those eyes

And the murkiness will clear as you traverse the path ahead
