On the Edge

I sat on the edge
The edge of the road
The line between insanity and sanity
The line separating me from the world

I sat in the dirt
On the dusty ground,
With the grime covering my clothes
The soot tarnishing my mind

I sat alone
With my thoughts disturbing me
Alone
Without the world
Protruding into me

I sat still
Silenced by the shock
Of the last fad
Society has unveiled
Never ceasing to amaze me

I sat wounded,
Hurt by the words unsaid
Scarred by the things of the past
Still glaringly vivid in my
Memory

I sat afraid
Terrified by what’s coming next,
The invisible future I have yet to live

I sat staring
Into the eyes of your expectant followers
Into the eyes of their hope
Into the eyes of ignorant

I sat wondering
If I should believe,
If there is something more
If everything will turn out okay



I sat on the edge
The edge of the path
The line between the truth and the lies
On the line between you and me
