A Choice

A Choice

A Poem by Lexi Askew

How do I walk such a fine line
Without tipping or tripping?
I fall one way
And I'm enabling bad decisions,
I fall the other
And I become a dictator.
I refuse to become either
But I'm not sure
If the middle ground is stable.
It's one big balancing act
Performed by a klutz.

Unfortunately some of us never out grow the klutzy part. The middle ground is playing it safe. But if you steer off the middle ground every now and then, it becomes harder to find yourself. To play it safe...is to be who others want you to be. It's okay to trip. (just sayin)

Lexi - we all do the best we can. It's not always easy to walk the straight and narrow path. I think the key is to do it as well as you can and not hurt anyone along the way.

Take care - Dave

I’m 19 years old, and I don’t post as much as I used to. I write what I care about, and whether it’s good or not doesn’t matter anymore. Just read what I write and do with it a.. more..
