The Lake

I stood staring

into the lake

slowly realising

I had made a mistake.

My reflection

stared back at me,

telling me this is not

where I should be.

Carefully I began

to turn around

afraid that

if I made a sound

I would

stumble and fall

with no one

near to hear my call.

With each

nervous step 

I made my way

from the edge

as if I was

a mountaineer

high upon

a perilous ledge.

Selfish thoughts

will try to take control

but I will fight

hard to regain my soul.
