CULTIVATING EMPOWERMENT THROUGH POETRY

High Strung, at the edge of a Cliff

1 Comment

The choices we make

have a big impact on our lives

 

There are tough ones

Not very easy ones

 

At times we can feel as if

We are high strung

at the edge of a cliff

 

But other times we can

feel as if we are falling

off a huge cliff

 

then we continue falling

as if we were in a bottomless pit.

 

Things will be scary

and traumatic

But I know they make you feel

high strung on an edge

of a cliff.

 

Or

 

Maybe it’s because you never

have had a high moment

and then when you have one

it feels like you are on top of the world

 

only to get shot down again

 

You see it coming

 

But

 

you don’t care, you just

let it happen anyway.

 

But all of a sudden

out of nowhere

you have this great change

 

And

once again you feel like

you are high strung

on the edge of a cliff

 

But

 

this time you won’t fall.

One thought on “High Strung, at the edge of a Cliff

  1. I especially like how you have structured this. As your reader, I “fall” through it and a range of emotion.
