Ride the Fence

Written by: Nathan Leccese

Here I stand on top of a fence,
   can’t make up my mind in my defense.

Looking left then looking right,
   wondering if staying would cause blight.

Maybe I can just stay where I’m at,
   walking the fence with grace as a cat.

What if I let someone else decide,
   as I put my opinion aside?

Would that save me the trouble,
   and help me stay in my bubble?

For I can’t let anyone inside,
   or my entire world would collide.

I could make my own decision,
   but then that might cause division. 

What if my decision is wrong,
   would the road be extremely long?

This choice that I have to make,
   is heading straight for a mistake.

So here I sit on top of this fence,
   trying to rely on my sixth sense. 

Planting myself not making a move,
   changing nothing trying to improve.
