a thin line moment

such a thin narrow slippery little line
separating light from dark
good from evil

how many walk
carefully along this line
step by step
one foot
deliberately placed
directly in front of the other foot
toe to heel
toe to heel

doesn’t take much

just a little puff of the winds of life
to cause a stumble
a little slip
an off balance moment

with an immediate plunge deep into darkness

this thin narrow slippery little line

get off it!

don’t even try to walk it

move over
well over
miles over

into the light

Love your poetry. Thank you - from someone still trying to walk the thin line when I need to leap into the light.
