At What Cost

When does society step in

a personal plea

to live our lives within

a desire to be free.

We all feel this burden

one day to the next

depends upon the stairs ahead and

whether we climb in context.

We all suspend our actions

when faced with a confusion

how possible is traction

when lost without a solution.

Stand on the edge

feel the fresh air

a certain metaphorical ledge

holds pattern with our flair.

We’re all the same you and me,

though some are seemingly free.
