balance & the light

walking the tightrope
barely balanced left to right
the heights are giving me a fright

teeter tottering i reach for the light
yet the shadows they follow
moving starkly from left to right

the fragile grace
sitting on the head of a pin
this really is no way to live

i yearn for the balance found on the edges
there is no reason to balance
on ledges

i carry my shadow on the left
the light on my right
all to in balance keep

avoiding the projection
of all that is wrong with me
onto you & all others

for we all require love
yet first we must learn
to balance ourselves from within
