“Up There” – Bicutan, 03 March 2016

i am

walking

on a

tightrope;

tense as

a coiled

spring,

holding my

breath

as i

traverse

point a

over to

point b.

 

high wire

under my

feet,

trembling in

every nerve:

but i

can do

this

i can

survive

thrive

flourish

and rise

above

the world

without fear.
