DAY 298

Walking a tightrope
while performing balancing feats
I look up and down
and I feel that I am walking by a wire stretched above what already have happened 

and far away from what could be 

Walking a tightrope
I am spinning on one foot, performing dangerous pirouettes
pretending to keep others happy with my skills and dedication
I look up and down
and I
feel that I am above a sea of misunderstandings 
under a sky of promises 

Walking a tightrope
on tiptoe
I doubt I will win
I look up and down
I feel that I am not going to reach the other side
there is abyss and chaos deep down 

light and serenity in the highest 

Walking a tightrope
considering the consequences of my acts, words and gestures
I make haste slowly
in order to live the life I dream about while honoring my past
  and without betraying my true self 

I am afraid I can fall 
and trust I will be able to fly if necessary

Walking a tightrope
moving to and fro
the only thing I can do is keep on walking
relying in my strength
keep on taking a step forward every time to escape from insanity
and cross the finishing line of clarity

because this is what my life is about

PS: My mother has been ill, she is getting better, and this is why I am behind with my post. Now that I am a bit quieter, I am transcribing my impressions of previous days
