As I step into the New World,
Unsure, anxious and puzzled.

As I take a few more strides
Legs shaking, Confidence subsides.

As I let my instincts give in,
Momentarily lost yet no pain.

As I feel surprised and bewildered,
Wondering if this is all for bread!

-----written on the first day at work---


*** repost from Critical Analysis ***



 In any moment of decision,
The best thing you can do is the right thing,
The next-best thing is the wrong thing,
And the worst thing you can do is nothing.

Each passing day gets better, and eventually, so will the bread.
We've all had those "first" days at work, know the feeling well.
~~nice writing~~

Very interesting - your name suggests you might have come here from another "world", and your poem tells of a new "world" we all know of - but the two together form a very intriguing picture.  To be facing both new worlds at the same time would be a fierce and  frightening experience, I would think!
