The Only Option
It has taken you years to get here.
Where you stand, this is your now.
You may feel exhausted,
the journey has been trying, and
you might not know where you are
headed, but going back
is not an option. Stand,
even for a moment, and take stock
of where you are. Where you have
been is inconsequential, now.
The past has given you experience,
if not direction, and it will serve you
well, but there is no going back. Not
now. Step forward, the only option
worth considering. This is your now.
