I take a step forward, then hesitate
Am I being impulsive, should I wait?
Conventional wisdom raises its voice
Weigh every option before making a choice
Haste in making a decision is not good
The likely consequences should be understood
Before committing to a decision that can
Be life-altering, there should be a backup plan
Fools rush in where angels fear to tread
Every step should be premeditated in your head..
I know rushing headlong into things
Without thinking through, without planning
May be a recipe for disaster, but on the other hand
Life has a knack for not going as planned
So why should I not just close my eyes
And just listen to my heart, and its advice
If my instinct tells me it’s the right thing to do
The challenges ahead it would carry me through..
Let me shut out all noise and take a leap
Into uncharted waters that run deep
My heart gives me hope that I shall swim
Even when my chances appear dim
Cross over to the other side, and live to tell
I jumped on intuition, and life turned out well
