“Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can’t see from the center.” Kurt Vonnegut

The Edge Of The Possible

Can you take me to the edge of who I am,
because I can't take myself there,
I can only take me wherever I am,
but you,
you can take me beyond,
you can take me to that blurred place,
the frayed line where 
everything and nothing is possible.

  1. A thought-provoking poem. The older I get, the more risk-averse I’ve become. The only way I’ll get close to the edge is if I’m wearing a safety harness.
