Playing It Safe - Poem by Maya Hanson (mye3)

Everyone is dancing
talking, playing
throwing poppers on the ground
shooting Roman candles into the sky
and searching for parachutes

But I keep my distance
Fireworks hurt
they burn your fingers
when you get too close

Scene changes
Running on the rooftops
along the side
of the rollercoaster
Exhilaration

But it's going too fast
I can't keep up
I let my hands drop,
I let myself slow
Keep playing it safe
it's the best way
it's the only way

Keep playing it safe
I'm just along for the ride
The thrill isn't worth the fight
Fireworks hurt,
I'm always blamed
and mistakes can never be changed

Ready?
Fire!
Aim
Got something to tell you, boys
Planning last doesn't work out
That's why I took the safe route
why I never leave my tower
why I keep playing it safe

Keep playing it safe
I'm just along for the ride
The thrill isn't worth the fight
Fireworks hurt when you
ready, fire, aim
and mistakes can never be changed
