The Limits…

As a kid, did you ever walk the lines of the road,

one foot in front of the other in a balancing act

pretending you were miles above the ground

one misstep and it’s over?

It felt like you had the entire world

watching you from below

waiting to see if you’d fall

arms out to keep upright

It didn’t matter that the imaginary rope

you were walking gave way to more standing room

what mattered  is that you tried your hardest

to keep going forward, it was important

Was it practice?

Were we trying to figure out how much

of a chance of survival we’d have

as if we are testing ourselves?

Maybe.

Or maybe were just being kids

doing what kids do

testing limits before we even knew what limits were.
