Walking on Glass

It is sobering to consider that
A very fine line divides us all from
Being deemed “not sane”.
What is the notion that keeps us in check? 
Why don’t we run ‘round and scream at the sky?
What is “civilized”?
What are good manners? Just why shouldn’t I
Jump on a table or jump off a bridge?
In wondering this, I now see the line—
The thin sheet of glass we all walk upon.
Underneath it, lies what we would be if
 We let ourselves go, and lose self-control.
Now that I see it, I should take more care…
My glass is cracking.

    Heck yes, TE. It's surprising how fast things can change, and we're jumping or yelling, maybe both, and perhaps doing things we'd never figured was possible.
