From one edge to another,
I saw that day.
Land on both sides, void betwixt.
There was a milestone and it said
“SUCCESS: A Leap Away,
DISTRESS: The Very Same.”
I knew, one wrong step,
And its Humpty-Dumpty all the way down.
Not that pain scares me, we’re next of kin,
Not that despair haunts me, Not that I don’t dare.
But as I stood there and looked on,
Both sides were the same,
Barren, rocky ground.
Life game me an edge to leap off,
And I turned around.
