Standing On Coal



Situations that become

Just too hot to handle

And somewhere with you

Or the place you call home

Became rattled

And lost your way

Confusion by the day

With plans that fell through

And not on a roll

Taking its toll on you

Like feet standing on hot coals

The skin and vulnerabilities exposed

Hard to stay on your toes

When things needed

Seemed to have froze

And for those in trouble often

Again, standing on coals

Get it together

And support your decisions

Making proper provisions

In order to gain

A second chance

Pulling yourself out of a trance

So that plans can unfold

Next time keep away

And stand with balance

To truly reap what you sow

As to not end up again

Standing on hot coals


Where writing comes alive
