Lack of Courage

Most days I feel
Like I am
Losing so much time
Sitting
Waiting
Hoping
For you to change

Never knowing quite for sure
If it is me or you that must change

Always believed that by
Not moving
Making no decision
Is the same as making one

Wondering if it is due to my lack of strength
Or no courage
To take those hits
That will happen if I choose
To move
Now

Wish I knew if this was truly my choice
Or one made only by lack of my courage

    Flows nice
    Difficult struggle indeed
    Won't know consequence until action has been taken

    Lack of courage to hold on and hope he'll change, or having enough courage to move on when he refused to change.....ponderous.

    Really Enjoyed. Makes you stop and think and then put yourself in the words. The question becomes is that what I am doing?
