One foot at a time, one step. One foot and then another in front. I balance on life’s tight rope.
It’s a high wire act and it’s a long way down. Do I dare stare into the eyes of the endless abyss?
The sweat from my forehead drips down my face kissing my lips rolling over my cheek and falling past my waist.
I forget the risk and all that is at stake.
I hear a whisper in the distance, followed by a sudden glimmer my eye caught a flash of light from afar.
My ears heard the beautiful melody of Santana’s Spanish guitar. I loose myself in the act the height of the wire is no matter.
I Am taken out of this state suddenly I stumble as the fear grew, it became a truth ever so near.
I could die if I fall, what of me if i fail. Will I make it, shall my soul prevail.
Death creeps into my mind as I continue to stumble, balance I cannot find.
Frozen, paralyzed, close to comatose as I stumble trying to find balance as I’m walking life’s tight rope.
But there’s hope, I Am saved by grace to get out of this defeated mind state.
I breath fully balancing on tip toes, I come close to falling into the nothing that is below me.
I leap and I dance as my confidence returned. I did find balance, as I stumbled. I’ll never die is the phrase in my ear giving me the strength too conquer all fears.
Find balance, as you stumble. Keep your head up and your feet beneath you and I garuntee you’ll be triumphant through any and all struggles.
Just keep your balance, don’t worry if you stumble. Find balance, as you stumble. Keep your eyes open for a way out the jungle.
