Favorite Quote:
"If" by Rudyard Kipling


I am walking,
A thin path of glass,
Beneath my feet looms the abyss,
Never ending, forever falling,
Abyss.
Treading lightly upon the trail,
One mistake and all my dreams crushed in an instant,
One mistake and I fall,
Never ending, forever falling,
Crushed.
If I close my eyes for one second,
I fall to my death,
All breath knocked from my helpless body,
Never ending, forever falling,
Death.
I hold my breath,
Hoping, praying, pleading,
Stepping with care,
Inch by inch,
Never ending, forever falling,
Please.
I fall,
My dreams, my hopes, my life,
I am falling,
Bullets of glass fly past my face,
I try to scream,
But no sound escapes my body,
Never ending, forever falling,
Gone.
