life is precarious


life in a balance
in the wind will sway
either left or right
it will never stay

along a thin line
walking everyday
taking cautious steps
trying not to stray

walking on the edge
now confused by change
taking each new step
will often feel strange

forward we must walk
balanced on a rope
with nowhere to go
don’t rely on hope

staying on the ledge
living without care
time you have to use
life you have to share

now stay on the move
and things will be fine
always stay focused
balanced on the line

swaying in the wind
a lot I have seen
know you have to cope
where others have been

life in a balance
in the wind will sway
once you know the game
in the wind, you’ll┬áplay
