balance 6/15/19


There is a tightrope I walk

it covers miles of canyons

which sink to depths I’ve never seen.

And the sky above is vast and huge

those tall summit heights I’ll never climb.

But the in-between is my tightrope.

I’m very fortunate to have a safety net

consisting of family, friends and even some strangers

off the internet.

This is all in place

just in case I stumble or fall.

It’s my saving grace.

I’ve been walking this same tightrope

since I was only 18.

Despite being terrified of heights,

I must continue walking this rope

above great canyons

It’s a process, a journey which never ends,

a struggle to find balance.
