“Jim Crow walks us on a tightrope from birth.”
We are players on our own stage, and stars.
Tightrope walkers are not always afraid;
rather they are comfortable on high.
It was 1974 when Philippe Petit
walked on a tightrope between Twin Towers;
others have completed walks over Niagara
Falls--such feats seem so unbelievable
as to be impossible, yet they are real.
Within our mundane lives, we find our own ropes
to walk, our own mountains to scale, because
we all need some madness in the daily
mix, some hot spice, or else we’ll never break
the chains, and be actually free--so listen
to the wise sages, and your own heart as well.
