Poem: "Balancing on a Cliff"

This poem is spillover from the March 7, 2017 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired and sponsored by Anthony Barrette.

"Balancing on a Cliff"

Making decisions is like
balancing on a cliff.

Is it courage or foolishness
to attempt something?

For every choice,
you must consider
both the risks
and the benefits.

It is the energy return
on energy invested that
determines whether a choice
is courageous or foolish,

or both.
