From the depths of despair, I climb —
Up, up, up!
I reach the top
And there I stay for but a while,
The world, frozen before me.
I hover above it,
Knowing that my mind
Can accomplish anything —
Clarity —
Creativity –
Nothing is unreachable —
But I know it won’t last,
And that’s the scary part.
In the back of my mind
I know that at some undisclosed day, hour, minute, second,
I shall fall —
Down, down, down.
No control.
Everything I have worked at will be left behind
And I shall end up
At the bottom
Looking up —
Wondering how I will get out of this hole.
