little pieces of poetry #4

Saturday, September 19, 2015
photo taken by me in Singapore in 2013.

I see you
I see you watching
I see you waiting
I see you scared to place your bet
Envying the other before you
That seem to leap
even before they try

but do you know
that you are not alone?
for all these others stand nearby you
watching those who leap
hoping that they crash and burn

because then
there is proof
that staying
in the fear cage
is the safest option.
