Sudden Moves

Everything hangs deathly by the wire
Waiting for a burst of wind to blow it from its lair
And send it tumbling out into an anxious air

Trembling at the thought of disturbance
Waiting for peace to rear its ugly head
On the edge —
With just enough courage to stay there

The fear of falling keeps it all in place
Letting go leads straight to uncertainty
Holding on leads straight to insanity
On the cutting edge of a sharpened blade is the place to be
To insure the heightened levels of anxiety
Any sudden move can cost you

All around us time stands still
Looking for a reason to jump into conscious play
And send us tumbling out every which way

Trembling at the thought of awareness
Knowing the pressure will soon take its toll
Nowhere to hide —
Hoping someone will take you away

The fear of falling keeps it in place
The tighter the grip the less chance you’ll fall
But the greater the chance you’ll lose it all
On the cutting edge of a sharpened blade is the place to be

Have faith — don’t be afraid of the change
Look up — see what’s ahead of you
You see, it just takes one to make a dream come true

A sudden move can set you free
Or cast you from the family tree
But you have to disengage
Before you can turn the page…
