This work has reached the exceptional level
When you reach that point...

On the Precipice* (*see author note)

by Y. M. Roger

I think I’d like to walk for a while
My briefcase, please hold it for me
I need time to contemplate
Alone, if you don’t mind
The world seems heavy
Its grip too tight
Yes...I’ll walk
and just

PLEASE READ each line purposefully with a deliberate pause at the end of each ... as if you are releasing a heavy burden a bit more with each line...with the final word breathed rather than spoken. :) ;)

Take time to relax! :) ;)

Thanx for reading me this evening...:) ;)
