What Should I Do?
‘Mpho… come out and enjoy the shine
by Mpho Petrus Manwedi
It is a beautiful day out here; ’ said Dee
I stood up and started towards the door,
For a moment I felt the thrill and the excitement
Of going out into that night rained, sunshine filled world
With the birds punching all sorts of beautiful melodies into their songs
But then I hesitated; something made me hold up.
And that moment passed.
What was it, fear?
Was it the fear of that unknown world out there?
Was it uncertainty?
Uncertain of what that world held for me?
I have seen its ugliness as I sat here at the small window of my soul.
Or was it laziness?
I have stayed inside for so long and maybe I do not want to lose my comfort zone
What shall I do?
What should I do?
