On The Ledge

 

Well, here I am, back up on this ledge,

And I’ve gotta say that I’m feeling on edge.

Lack of confidence swallows me whole

Making escape become my ultimate goal.

Everything’s tiny way down below,

Just one little  step and over I’d go;

But maybe I’ll pause, think what I’m doing

Just get a grip on these thoughts that are brewing.

Do I step forwards or do I step back?

Decisiveness has turned to something I lack.

So I’ll go back inside and I’ll go back to the ground,

Not resolute in the solution I’ve found.

This time I have landed but emotions still flail;

Maybe I’ll reconcile, maybe I’ll fail.

The ledge it remains there, an escape it will give

If I finally realize I no longer shall live.
