The Outer Edge

The Outer Edge

The outer edge is where they live
Still watching as we take and give
One day the world will change for good
And then too late for ‘could’ or ‘would’

A time to think on who we are
The times we failed or went too far
And then to start with something new
Before our dreams slide out of view

We’re all the same within this place
Don’t be afraid to show your face
And if you are, then heed these words
You’re weaker than the bees and birds

For whom may words like this have use?
Who knows? ¬†At times they’re far too loose
But leave the toys, no time to hedge
They’re coming from the outer edge
