Hesitation (O.S.I.)

Move where the currents stir you
Wait patiently for the face of time

Welcome waves when they beguile you
Be cautious to opening your borders

Explore the limitless glory of the universe
You cannot reach your destination without a compass

Be joyous and carefree
Many tasks and chores await you

The universe is your canvas to paint upon
There isn’t a brush big enough to capture it

Stretch your arms towards the stars
How long until we reach our destination

Pour out all your love like rain
Be careful who you give your heart to

Strike the flames of passion and let it burn
A scented candle is much safer

Endless thoughts and contradictions
Alas, the heart is filled with hesitation

I like the contradiction, what we thought and we want not to think collides so easily
