DO NOT TOE THE LINE

DO NOT TOE THE LINE

 

A road that’s not taken

is a road forsaken.

Do not turn your face

from the hectic race.

Follow the bright lights

and achieve great heights.

Do not hang your head in fear

for your time is now and here.

Take your place in the curving line

of others who won’t toe the line.

Rev up your engine and soar

with your foot pressed to the floor.

You have only one chance

in life to sing and dance.

Let this be your time

to not toe the line.

 

SEND IN THE CLOWNS

The line is long

for the Ferris Wheel.

You wait.

And wait.

Then you’re on the ride.

You’re soaring high

above the crowds.

Feeling the wind

in your hair.

The ride stops short.

You’re at the top,

looking down.

You wait.

And wait some more.

Nothing is moving.

Except for the clowns.

Clowns are climbing the ride.

They’re pulling people from

their seats, and flinging

them to the ground below.

How could this be happening?

It could if it’s a dream.

I close my eyes,

praying it’s a dream.
