Don’t Look Down

fear of new heights

go to the Grand Canyon

don’t look down

everyone seeks perfect selfie

only the camera is pointed down

as I  look up

my back to the canyon floor

captured in the view finder

on the see-thru walkway

don’t look down

Don’t Look Down

Fear of Falling

fear of falling

makes me lose balance

don’t look down

fear of falling tells me

don’t look down or

you will fall down

fear of falling says

you will lose

your equilibrium

fear of falling

wants me to fall

to make it right

fear of falling

knows that when I fall

I lose control

fear of falling

wants to control me

making me fall

fear of falling

changes to failing

it is the same fear
