Taking a Step

Here I am,
A second before I take that step,
I reflect,
My eyes perceive multiple worlds,
They form into questions,
Like "Will I succeed from this step?",
or "Will I perish from an unthinkable action I will soon regret?",
Hopes and Nightmares,
True and False,
What should we believe to be the right action?,
The rail before me opens a new door,
Shall I confide beneath the handles to shadow my figure?,
or should I reveal myself to the new opportunities awaiting outside?,
It is time to make a decision,
Take a step forward,
Or take a step back?,
The choice is yours to make.
