Taking Sides

It may not be greener on that side.
But I know I am tired of the way I hide.
It’s not so much that I want to be over there.
As it is I no longer want to be here.

It’s not the possibility of what may come to be.
That is what is pulling against me.
More that I know where I am.
And being here is…well I no longer can.

Climbing up life’s shaky fence.
My side no longer makes any sense.
If I find myself hanging lifeless from a rusty nail.
I would rather die trying than die inside as I fail.
