I sit on my window seat

Watching the world passing by

Wondering if I should join in

Or keep my own world inside


Maybe, I just think too much

Remembering all that has passed

I'm not afraid of the future

Just afraid it will not last


I have come to a decision

Nothing ventured, nothing gained

I will walk into the sunshine

And forget about the rain

    Lovely and thought-provoking, poignant, with excellent imagery and a wonderful metaphor. I feel the same way many times, seems. Aye, walk in the light of the Word of God and the future is not such a daunting proposition, because He already told us the end from the beginning. Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed it.
