Backwards - Forwards

I'm full of emotions

Which I don't want to explore

For if I go any further

Change will hit me squarely on the nose

But If I stay

I'll retreat

I'll go back to being the one

Who didn't know

I don't know which one scares me more.

My feelings are like the waves crashing against the shores

I'm lost now

When I shouldn't be

I should be at soar

See I've come so far

Yet I feel so alone

I've cut myself away

Slowly

Strand by strand

And now I can't mend the tearing That's been done

Only One much greater than I can do this

But I'm scared

I only have two ways to choose

Two turns to take

Backwards or forwards

A voice in the distance calls me forwards
