A VERY FINE BALANCE
by John Yeo
He sees the world with unique eyes.
The eyes of youth, full of his personal view,
selfish to the point of careless.
He is aware of his own perspective
on the events in this uniquely individual world.
Everything seems fine, no matter what,
he always seem to survive.
Tomorrow is another day!
A day that never arrives they say.
Reality reflects a different view.
A view from the outside looking in
Although he casts a long straight shadow
The stairs leading up shape another view.
Teetering on the brink of a downward fall.
A fall that will certainly come
A very fine balance indeed!
