Fear Of Travelling

A place visited many times
yet now so unfamiliar
Each fork leads me
down an unknown path
I hesitate to walk on
Each new corner
still beckons
but I fear what lies
around it

Where once I charged fearless
without a map
I now plot my route
with painstaking precision
lest I wander onto
untested roads

When did I lose the joy
of hurtling headlong
into uncharted territory
seeking the thrill of discovery
uncaring of where
my destination lay
immersed in the joys
of the journey

When did I begin to fear
travelling through my mind?
