A Bad Decision

Michelangelo’s First Painting

My fears
overpower me
forcing me to forget the path
I once chose.
An ambiguous future waits.
Betting against unclear prospects,
I lose.

An ekphrastic poem, written for Day 6 of the April 2016 PAD Challenge at Poetic Asides. My inspiration: Michelangelo’s First Painting.
