If I step into the vortex where will it lead?

Will it take me closer to my dreams?

Or will I be dragged back in time and find myself?

The version of me that no longer exists.

I have stood on the edge of this whirlpool for so long that now I am stuck.

Too afraid to move forward, and not wishing to go back, now wandering without a compass or map to guide me.

So I realise that stepping into the vortex is the only way to find what I seek, my source and the reason why I am here on this earth.
