Tightrope Journey

Tightrope moment 
Narrow access
Balance is almost unimaginable
The left of the balance lays before 
me deception
And on the right, distraction
The gapping drop is hard to 
One misstep
And fatality swallows you whole

I want to make this journey across
But I keep diving in after a struggle 
or two
This road is harder to cross than 
once thought
But giving in has been my choice for 
too long
