When the Ground Beneath You Crumbles and Falls Away

Objects, and the Distance Between Them

When you were younger
Every gap and fold
Seemed like the end of the road
But soon you learned if your
Feet left the Earth
There weren’t many places you could not go

Now you are older and the
Valleys are wide
There are so many obstacles left to cross
And though you’re still light
That can’t be said of your load
Which gets heavier with every loss

But lose not hope
When the ground beneath you
Crumbles and falls away
Don’t be afraid to step back
There is a difference between
Ground lost and perspective gained

Time and experience impart
Feathers each, to makeshift wing
Vestigial now and mottled grey
Fold it close and carry on
Though it cannot now
It will carry you far some day

And when you reach
A precipice
Beyond which you cannot see
And voices taunt from shadows dark
Telling you to turn back
