Indecisive

Decisions weighty
I plan but am divided
half sailing; half cowering

Optimism cheery
experience berating

Nested in tradition
craving alternatives

Can I not see that plans
are investments,
overcome the fear
in favour of expansion.

(Writing this I am reminded of the saying: “I used to be indecisive; now I’m not so sure.” Image my own.)
