Afraid of Life
Gasping for breath
the old man
takes a timid step
on the edge of the smoky abyss
while all around him
young ones are leaping boldly
making the jump
torn and bloody
scrabbling wildly for passage
on the other side.
He watches them
shaking his head at their impetuosity
as he slowly
takes another step
and wonders if
he will ever have the courage
to look over the edge
