To Live on the Edge - A Poem of Freedom

Updated on July 2, 2011

Living on the Edge

Living on the edge of freedom

With winds of change appearing before me

I’m flying into novel challenges

Soaring above my wildest dreams

I’m creating new tomorrows.


Living on the edge of wanderlust

My feet are itching to try something new

Maybe travel to new countries

And find discoveries of the unknown

The journey I create is all in the imagination.


Living on the edge of Mystery

Charting waters I do not know

Swimming into the dark seas of life

Taking unpredictable chances

Drenched in the deep while floating along


Living on the edge of Solidity

Holding myself together

Like a pair of bookends

Chasing the dreams I believed

By having a faith to withstand the storms


Living on the edge of Solitude

Isolating my thoughts with reflection

Dancing with the devil I scream

Move out of my life and leave me alone

Facing all of my convictions

The visions of a future become clear

Dare to Dream - Do you know...

Living on the edge of Bravery

Conquering the storms

With the mighty sword of truth

Wearing the armor of God

To fight against the negativity

To blaze out the unrealities approaching me


Living on the edge of Love

Calling me crazy to believe

Asking for more substance

To express my soul’s hypocrisies

My spirit then lifts upon His gentle wings


Living on the edge of Tomorrow

With the promises I have been given

That all my dreams will come to pass

Never giving up on what I held close

For I know, I believe, I can withstand.

And I can live,

On the Edge of my Dreams.


Living on the Edge of your Passions

      Thanks Karen, "On the edge of time" sounds like a song to be heard. You must share it. Do you have it published or on youtube? Thanks for your vote up.

      Living on the edge will remain for me, a story to be continued...

      Thank you Cogerson. Appreciate you stopping by. With everything surrounding web writing, I felt the need to write this, as I feel I'm still living on the edge.
