For all the expectations made and obtained
there's a snag in the tight rope line
of reaching your resting place.
An already thin line
is even more daunting to step
when your eyes drift to dream
of where you'd rather be.
Getting to that dream is
essentially the same
as falling to your demise.
Dreaming is dangerous,
it'll send you plummeting
back down to earth,
but also leave you gathering the rest
of your splattered self off the ground.
