Out on a limb,
Hanging over the precipice,
Terrifying and thrilling, all at once,
This risky business, of being me.
Does life offer a more sensible solution?
Would it be better,
To “lie” around in bed,
With the living dead, instead?
Nice and tight,
With my “comforter,”
Of false security?
Siping with vampires and zombies;
And troublesome bedfellows!
Sacrificing my life blood?
I’d rather dip my toes,
In humanity’s living sea,
Swimming naked, shameless and free…
Risking being me.
