Uncertainty. Not an easy feeling to explain

It is haunting and weighs on the heart

Unknowing and yet certain of my fate

Shall I give the heart what it wants?

Or stay safe within my cocoon?

My shelter built throughout the years

A fortress used to hide from pain

From the tears and sleepless night

Yet I have cried more tears behind these walls

My safe place where pain should not find me

Comes to me in the middle of the night

In the darkness I can not hide

And morning light finds my eyes

Open to a decision I must make

Yet I am still left

      Wonderfully and poetically put. That is one of the hardest decision - to follow your heart or not?

      Making difficult decisions can be such a problem and lead to sleepless nights. Loved the way you dealt with it in poetry.
