In or Out? Go or Stay?: OctPoWriMo, Day 5

Standing in the doorway,

Unable to decide what to do.

Do I stay in my safe confines,

Or should I try something new?

I want to hug the familiar spaces,

Alone with only my thoughts.

The outside world does intrigue me,

But its pull on me I have fought.

Yet, I think of the places I could go,

And new experiences I could savor.

I want to see the fjords of Norway,

Just thinking of Oslo makes me quaver.

Or walking on the moors in England,

Or drinking a half bitter at a local pub.

In fact, I could wander all over the world,

Living in Atlanta, a major travel hub.

So, I need to really make up my mind,

Will I seek adventures or at home I stay?

I have to make the choice someday real soon,

For life is passing me by a little every day.
