Life's Precarious Edge

Is it really a life worth living
When we’re balanced on so precarious an edge?
Seconds is all it takes
For life to change its course
A sudden turn with an undetermined end
Can bring this precarious life over the edge

Just a few words can bring us tears
And just a few words can make our day
A smile from a friend will bring us joy
And a scowl from a foe can cut us deep

Success gives us wings
To fly higher and achieve more
But when we fail
We mope around
And forget how to even walk on the ground

With high hopes
And tender nervousness in our hearts
We bite the bullet
And play our part
But when
Faced with rejection
All our dreams clattered
All our hopes drowned
We lose the energy
To get up
And try once again

Is it really a life worth living
When we’re balanced on so precarious an edge?
A sudden turn with an undetermined end
Can bring this precarious life over the edge
And where has the now energy gone
That was necessary to climb our way back?
