Direction

There is a tug of war.
I am being pulled
In two ways.
My dreams have taken hold
Of my semi-opened wings
And pull furiously
In the direction of the sky.
My friendships penetrate my roots
Holding too tight,
Unwilling to let go,
Keeping me with them
For as long as they want me.
I want to cut ties and fly,
It is no question which way
I thirst for.
It is a question, though,
If I have the courage
To break free.

    Beautiful words – certainly something I can relate to. I hope you break through the fear of the unknown because the reward can be life changing.
