There is a Place for your Feet

There is a Place for your Feet

A Poem by Hannah Rose
"

Temptations to stand on the edge.

"
There is a place for your feet.

It is firm and will not fall away.
Yet it looks fragile.

It is dry and promises easy balance.
Yet it appears slick.

It is enticing and reveals miles of wonder.
Yet it magnifies endless fear.

There is no force to push you.
Yet a presence lurks behind your back.

You do not go near it.
Yet worry grows.

"I will not go near it."
Yet legs move.

There is a place for your feet.

What you would give for this view.

Why don't you submit to fear?
How do you let it take control?
Why does no one hold you back?

On the edge you will stand, when there is a place for your feet.

i live by it,lol have stood on it,have felt it
I am not on for poems. Mostly because i do not always get them. As for this one I Could Not Stop reading! I so wanted to find out where it was going, and to see the end it would bring me to. I Loved It! Thank you for shearing it.

Esoteric? I don't even know what that means. I followed along too, just like ole George there, step by step, until I realized there was no place for my feet and I fell off a huge cliff. Kinda' like texting and walking. Well, now I have a broken leg from my fall. Thanks a l ot Hannah. I'm only teasing, of course.
A very wonderfully written piece.
I have this terrible fear of speaking in front of crowds. It usually goes away after I sit down.
I suppose in this case, it's not so much a place for my feet as it is a place for my rear.
A wonderful poem.

Haha sorry about your leg! I'm glad you were able to connect with it! Public speaking is terrifying!.. read more
I liked thisHannah, well written and taking the reader along a step at a time. It seems to me to be very much about the conditions in which we live and perilous times in which we live yes,there is indeed a'place for ones feet' that may well look fragile, perhaps it is a matter of seeking the safe place, great writing especially as it gives the reader much to take away and consider further

A bit surreal with a side of esoteric.

Bravo Poet!
