Torn

I'm torn between two roads,
One facing the wide open sea,
the other, lush green meadows facing me,
Should I stay or should I be free?

The sea beckons the sail to freedom
Of dreams and happiness beyond
Alas! Did I just ask myself?
Do I really know how to swim?

My heart yearns for that open sea
But I can't, for to leap is suicide
Unacceptable troubles and curse
These my mind can't comprehend.

The meadows offer the safety, Life wants
the bondage, secured but pure pretense
Here I am succumbed to this place
To dig my nails on this earthly cage.

Will I risk my life for that open sea?
Or will I stay here and be safe?
Of that I'm sure I'm coward
This thing I'm brave enough...I'll not admit
