Tightrope

The ascent up the ladder.

The roar of the audience.

The thrill of the moment.

The tightrope awaits.

The fame and notoriety.

The shame and ridicule.

The praise and the wealth.

The pain and the loss.

The walk begins.

The sweat drips.

The crowd stares.

Failure is near.

Friends.

Family.

Love.

Life.

Everything is at risk.

Nothing is safe.

One wrong move,

Is all that it takes.
