Sleeping On The Edge

poem about taking risks


Sleeping on the Edge
can be dangerous
you may fall
or maybe not
dreaming of a life
unaware of it all

is that our way of life?

fear is born
when we wake up falling

sleeping on the Edge
sounds so familiar
because conformity
blurred our vision
into acceptance.
we do not feel
the necessity to change anymore

is that our way of life?

tears are discovered
when we wake up dead

Sleeping on the Edge
is our life, our existence,
our bliss, our curse.
Sleeping on the Edge
is our End.
