Ropes This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   An adolescent walks the tightrope,

With an audience perched on the edges of their seats,

Awaiting a mistake with laughter building building in their bellies,

Ready to ridicule,

But the nervous child walks very carefully,

Trying not to slip,

Few run across carelessly without a problem,

Many tip-toe as carefully as possible,

Yet they still slip.

There are many ropes,

High,

Short,

Thin,

Long,

Some choose to jump before they finish the journey down the rope.

Ever been to the circus?
