Blind Choices


Blind Choices

my vision is clouded over,

a misty veil obscures my sight.

I frantically attempt to focus,

straining with all my might.

Wanting to be unruffled,

feelings get in the way.

Common sense is stifled

as heavily it does weigh.

Doubt rears its ugly head again,

dare I to believe,

in all that has been sacrificed

and all we have achieved?

Formidable is the gossip

destruction set free.

This time I will ignore it,

and treat it as debris

Sometimes it takes a leap of faith

to maintain the road so narrow.

One must set aside all else

continue straight as an arrow.

        I like that you point out that common sense is "stifled" by feelings. Sometimes our emotions can get in the way of making a good decision for the long run. "Unruffled" and conscious of the sacrifices that have been made. Great wording. Great post.
