I let go and breathe in,
only worried for what comes next.

Another door awaits me,
but I can’t take that last step.

The nerves that fill my body are telling me to stay behind.
Because the future that lies ahead of me isn’t all that bright.

But isn’t that what life’s about?
Taking chances and risks?
Living life to the fullest,
before your life no longer exists?

I turn the doorknob slowly,
and peek through the crack.

My future could be brighter,
but I determine that.
