Plank


A plank was balanced on a wall

Sea-sawing wildly, about to fall.

I stayed and watched that swinging plank

But people passed thought me a crank.

So I went my way not knowing when

Or whether that plank fell into the fen.

Reviewed by Christine Tsen 7/18/2010
Very interesting imagery!
And the sense of regret that they swayed your decision of wanting to stay, that you let them influence you is poignant.
Blessings,
Christine
