Time for a poem

Writing a poem #1

It has to be like alternating tightropes.
You're either balancing on the one of sorrow
Or on the one of elation
Hopping from one to the other
One misstep and you fall
Into that swamp of nothing really matters
Seems easier to balance on the tightrope of sorrow
Everyone standing so still and all
Harder to balance on the tightrope of elation
What with trying to bring everyone over
Makes it tough to gain a foothold
