Into the Future (poem)

I wrote this one a couple of years ago:

Walking blindly into the future
because I loved you
because I trusted you
because you were holding my hand

Failing to recognise that
taking no action is an action
failing to choose is a choice
staying on the path is a direction

Taking so long to learn
that every second is a decision
that not changing is a choice
that my future is my own

Walking blindly into the future
I looked back at the past
I saw all my decisions
and I

      let go your hand
