Poetry: Girl on High Wire

By Monica C. Voskamp


Confidence renewed,

She places her foot

Firmly down on

Thick knotted wire.


Inhaling deep

She lets go

All anxieties,

And steadies herself.


Balancing slow

Calming her heart

She wills herself

To step forward.


I can do this

She says

I can do this again.


Watch her,

And smile

There she goes

Girl on high wire.


Always believe. Always hope. Always love. ❤
