Standing

Delaying
If I am on a path
It will be there tomorrow
Indecisive
When the day always comes
Full of promises
And today is ending
Before tomorrow begins
Until then I wait
Procrastinating
Daydreaming

It’s not really a journey
If I’m standing in one place
Does this mean I’ve arrive?
If I don’t move
But I stretch my arms around me
To enjoy the here, the now
Embrace where I stand
Take in what’s around me

Can I stay where I am
Until I’m ready to go?
The roads seem endless
Timeless. No pressure. Yet…
You say I’m stalling
Delaying the inevitable.
But I would hate to reach
The end of my road
And not remember what I’ve seen.
