Tightrope Walk

Personal (Hope)

All I can do is take it
one step at a time,
keeping my eyes forward.

Never looking where I’ve been
or where I would go
if I happened to fall.

I maintain a steady pace,
moving slowly and surely
always staying focused
on the task at hand.

I cannot see the end
of this tightrope walk,
but I know I will see
victory when I get here.
