368 – Stuck

Life
Comes at you
Fast
When you’re
Living
At the edge.

Just
A tumble
Can
Break skin
And
Shatter bone
Without
A warning.

Just
A wrong
Turn
And you’re
Scattered
At the
Bottom
Of the
Ledge.

Just
A blink
Drives
You straight
Into
A wall.

With luck
It will
Not kill you,
But it will always
Leave
A bruise.

In time
The pain will fade,
The scars
Are honor badges
To survival.
