Fearing a turn in the wrong direction
he stands still..
Frozen by his lack of confidence
he lost hope.

All directions
lead to failure.
All directions
are frightening.

Yet standing still
he is torn apart.
He wants to move
but defies himself.

Shamefully crying
he weeps alone.

    I can really relate to this one, Nicholas. So many times I have been frozen by fear. The tears that follow usually provide a great catharsis. Thank you for sharing this introspective poem! Love, Carolyn
