Standing on the edge
Standing on the brink
About to fall over
Just holding on

Pressure building all around
People, things, events
Pushing on me
Breaking my strength

Standing on a precipice
Will I fall?
Or will they pull me back?

Do they care?
Do they see?

I'm breaking
falling, shattering

Is this important?
Do I matter?
I'm not the only one

Will I be saved?
