The edge (A poem by Phanuel Ayelum)

I know;

That the odds are against us

That space and time aren’t on our side

And that we’re a mission impossible

Trying to rise above the tide.

I know;

That we don’t stand a chance against the universe

That we don’t write the rhythm of time

That our melody doesn’t harmonize with reality

And that fate isn’t giving us much of a sign.

I know;

That we shouldn’t have tried

That we shouldn’t have dared

I know we’re a shot in the dark

But I honestly do not care.

I still;

Have enough breath to keep trying

Enough love to give

Enough room to keep flying.

I’ll still;

Push away the thought of losing you

Embrace the idea of seeing you again someday

And still long to be with you.

I’ll still ask for pictures

When I’m craving touches.

I’ll still challenge the continuum

Until we find the edge.
