40somethings
 
 
I’m                                   totter,      
         on              teeter-
                    a                            
                                            
  
                     UP,
Somedays              Somedays
                                                   DOWN,
 
Soaking
                   in
                            self-
                                        evaluation
                                                                 deep,
                                                                              down,
                                                                                             profound…
 
Am I all I can be?  Can I be more?  Am I enough?  Should I be more?
I’m already mid-way.
MID-WAY! OH NO!
My heart misses a summersault and crashes into a fence,
My brain frantically over talks,
I’ve no defense!
 
No
            longer
                              soaking
                                                 but
                                                              drowning…
 
Have I done everything I should have, anything I could have?
I'm I truely all that I seem? What’s left? What goals? What dreams?
 
I’m   on                                                                                                                                            
              a                                       i  can't                                       
                     teeter-  Totter  and                 get
                                                                             OFF!
 
I   Hang                                                                                  
              On
                     For
                            Dear
                                        Life,
                                                  Too  Terrified,
                                                                                To
                                                                                      let myself

                                                                                                 just   
                                                                                                          F
                                                                                                              A
                                                                                                                 L
                                                                                                                    L.

Your 40 something and questions soar and haunt, no guidelines, just mixed up interrogation ......or is it just me that can't find peace?

If I could give this a million stars I would. The subject to the words to the form... Just pefect.
Muminah Muhammad More than 1 year ago
I like he picturesque words they really put the meaning across.  I loved the rhyme scheme and everything else.  Is it possibly because I am 40 something.

I loved it.  Especially capturing the feeling using different word placements.  Very effective.  Try jumping off instead of falling.

I love everything about this, the punctuation, the rhythm, how it is in the first person. This is truly well-written.

Ask away.. when is enough enough. Even asking whether its enough..
Good play in typography.. making the reader walk in your shoes..
Typography should be used more often.
A subtle yet definite aid

I see why you won a Pin, but that isn't saying much.  Your humor is so far untouched.
