The road

You want to walk a mile in my shoes?

Man, I don't think so

I don't think you'll make it

Do I think the shoe won't fit?

Absolutely not

Maybe it will fit perfectly

But that road...

I'm not sure whether I should call it slippery

I don't know

But here's what I know

It is full of mixed signals

I feel like I'm reading everything wrongly

It's exhausting

When I have to sit and think about one thing a million and one times

And end up overthinking

Giving the wrong response

And bam!

Dead end

I'm not being pessimistic

I just like seeing all possible ways something is going to turn out

You should always be prepared they say

So, yes I don't think you'll make it

But you're welcome to try.

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world

This poem made me really think about many outcomes of things before they happen, and it also told me that everything you do might not be the outcome you want but you can always try. Thank you for sharing
