On the Edge


I walk on the edge
of humanity
Masking my insanity
as normalcy.
Not giving in to
the whispering fears
Of voices in my head
            calling out "Don’t Fall."
I respond with a smile
and hold tighter to that edge.

I walk on the edge
of icy cliffs
Clinging with pickax
            as to life itself.
Not giving in to
the whispering fears
Of voices in my head
calling out "Don’t Fall."
I respond with a smile
and hold tighter to that edge.

I walk on the edge
of space
Sucking air in a helmet
            as the world spins below.
Not giving in to
the whispering fears
Of voices in my head
            calling out "Don’t Fall."
I respond with a smile
and hold tighter to that edge.

I walk on the edge
of words
Expressing without clarity
as I discover my rhythm.
Not giving in to
the whispering fears
Of voices in my head
calling out "Don’t Fall."
I respond with a smile
and release myself over the edge.
