Cliff of Embarrassment

Scared of falling
Scared of what lies beyond
I hold my breath
As I dance around the world

The thing about this cliff
Is that it’s everywhere
There is no telling
When you are about to fall

That’s why I have to be careful
Reminding myself
Every step I take
I could be at the very edge

But sometimes I wonder
What really lies
Beyond that cliff
Will it be death?

Or will it be…
Something else?
Disturbing discomfort
Awful awkwardness?

Why don’t I find out
Just jump off that
Cliff of Embarrassment
And see what happens
