Walking a tightrope

Walking a tightrope     High above the crowd     Faces below me     Shouting out loud      Come here go there     Directions all about    My once certainty     Has now become my doubt     Lost my way     Let all my demons in     A blinding arrogance     Appears to be my sin    Never took heed     Always went my own way     Closed my ears     To all the words people say     Need to keep my balance    Can`t let go now   Very difficult task     Seems I forgot how     Feel myself slipping    Into the crowd below     No safety net in sight     To cushion the blow    Before I hit     Will my arms sprout wings     Will know very soon     What my future brings

    I like the built up suspense and the layout of the poem.
