Precipice


Texte: forward along the cliff-edge – The Composer Says This is How We Should Live Our Lives by Patricia Fargnoli

 

The eyes focus forward to future days
While silent thoughts visualize the changing ways
When dreaming is the way living will be
Instead of tittering on the knife-edge
And barely gazing out across the sea
The journey must start with the biggest leap
As the footstep becomes the giant stride
That leaves behind the broken tears that weep
For chances lost in all that the heart denied
Emotions shatter as they slip and slide
With no privacy in the public gaze
All those words of hate make the going steep
As aching feet fumble from ledge to ledge
On the precipice towards destiny

About Jez Farmer

I am a freelance writer and poet and started writing after raising my two boys as a way of discovering just who Jez is. That is still very much an on-going project but the journey so far has introduced me to many wonderful friends and fellow writers through an ever growing love of poetry.
