The Abyss

The Abyss

I have danced around the abyss before
Perched precariously
Along its jagged peaks
Seeking adventure
Just out of reach.

I have walked through the desert before
Parched and beaten
By the noon day sun
Seeking fortune
Or a little fun.

I have sailed in high crest seas before
Pitched about on bended knee
Felt lost in time and place
Seeking paradise
And salvation’s grace.

I have prayed in great cathedrals
Preached sermons about faith
But never have I known such risk
Or felt this fear
As I stare straight in the abyss.
