I’m standing on the shore-
the trend line between firm land and mysterious deep.
Anything can happen-
either I’ll move towards the land
or I’ll be drowned forever into the unknown water.
I can hardly understand what the waves are telling me,
“Go back” or “Come close.”
I cannot but wait and watch.

The lure of the sea! It's drawn many a human down to the depths.
I can feel the suspense here in your words. Well done!

If I were to sum your poem in two words, it is uncertainty and the mystery of delving into the unknown without fear. Thanks for sharing.
