Daily Word Prompt: From the Sidewalk to the Street

A wallflower 

But on a wall of her own 

Seeing the world from the sidewalk 

But never from the street 

As the world passes her by 

All the passers by 

Tempted to take that one step 

Out of her comfort zone 

Unto the pavement 

Thinking about all the possibilities 

The impossibilities 

As well as the consequences 

Being overwhelmed by it all 

She stalls 

So tempted 

But stricken with fear 

Of the uncertainty that awaits

On the other side 

All it takes is that first step 

Off the the sidewalk 

And unto the street.
