One foot in front of another.
Look at me! Way up in the air.
Delicate as a dandelion seed.
Each step of a dance on a wire.
Look! I’m fine. Swinging in the breeze.
Beautiful as a ballerina.
Life swirls around with a bump.
Look ahead! Aiming for the goal.
Pretending, as if knowing success.
Trouble lands, shaking the footing.
Looking down, the abyss below.
Steadying, breath cleansing from tension.
One step after another.
Look at me. Don’t see me shaking.
Confident, moving forward until,
I fall, or not.
