Hi there! Please enjoy this poem that I wrote this evening. I’m away camping again this weekend, so won’t be able to post, but I’ll be back again Monday!
You’re standing on thin ice, watching
Cracks splintering away, knowing
That if you stay in one place
Then you’ll avoid
But the pounding of your heart persuades you
To move your feet, anxiety
Pushing you along,
And you take a step in the direction
You think is best, only
To hear the grinding cracking of the ground,
To see the gaps widening
Beneath your shoes, threatening
There is no going back.
