Walking the Line

Warrior spirit
berating the core
of the peace walkers always
searching for more.

Contentment kept safely
beyond our grasp, as
our hunger for the bonds
of the world are steadfast.

We trade in our initial
intent for the rush
of walking the line between
heaven and crushed, for

greater is the thrill while
racing towards a fall
as the world waits for just
one of us to stand tall.
