Independence

Beneath your feet

Mistakes shriek

Louder than uncertainty

Unbalancing your footing

You avoid the holes

Carefully seeking security

Moving in and out of exposure

Your limbs coordinate unsteadily

This dance routine puffs hysterics

Through mirrored floors

Abandoning smoke signals

Looking for the safety net

Trust is entwined around their connections

A hand sticks out in front of you

You refuse to take it

And plunge gracefully into liberty
