Off Balance On The Edge

Walking on the edge remembering
Laughing with the pain I knew
Trying to find a safe place to step
My point of balance is askew

It's just the edge of insanity
And it's a fall I know to well
How far away does heaven seem
As I inch closer and closer to hell

It wouldn't take much for me to slip
But I can't move away from the edge
For each day there seems to be one more push
Towards this edge that I no longer dread

This downward spiral calls my name
As it has many times before
Should I just let go of it all
Or can I take just a little more?

I'm sure so many have stood here before
Standing off balance on the edge
Hoping for something to pull them back
From this free fall in their head...
