Worth the Risk

Spilled milk
A false step
The wrong word
Screams ensued
Within I wept

The next day
I fell again
Bad choice
Screams followed
The pain again

Straighten up
Shoulders back
Arms at my sides
Hold here
Polite talk
Soft tone

Don’t get out of line again

How long will I last
Is it in the past
Can I try this
No. Back in line

Let the rebellion begin

You may go amiss

I tire of this
Who cares if I fail or fall
Isn’t Life worth the risk
