Indecision

eer_0644

When I think of indecision, I think of squirrels crossing the street! They run out and then stop, not sure they can make it, they freeze before darting away just in time. Sometimes they don’t make it.Β  The same is true with humans. Indecision causes us to freeze and not be able to function adequately. Sometimes we don’t survive either!

Indecision

Indecision is the cancer of the soul

The stealer of joy in life

The weight that becomes unbearable

Indecision races through the mind

Veering wildly around sharp turns

Looking over steep heart-stopping cliffs

Indecision distorts perception

Assumes answers yet to be given

Like quicksand sucking us down

Indecision all-consuming anxiety

Fear of the inevitable choice

Knowing it must be made

Indecision leaves us chained

Stealing our freedom to be

Stuck in the swamp of worry and woe

Indecision leaves us impotent

Lacking will to move on

Leaving us hollow and empty

  1. This is such a wonderful poem πŸ’•πŸ‘and sums up the crippling fear we sometimes endure while making important decisions in life. I think we get ourselves this way because we overthink things. It’s all about striking that balance of not overthinking but then not thinking about it at all, or else nothing productive will come of it. Me thinksπŸ˜‚ Thanks for sharing this great poem of yours 😊

  2. That very moment we find ourselves at Crossroads, not knowing what decision to make “When I think of indecision, I think of squirrels crossing the street! They run out and then stop, not sure they can make it, they freeze before darting away just in time. Sometimes they don’t make it.”
    Some times we make it through, other times leads to our ruins…. #INDECISION ***
    Nice one Dwight
