The Lifeline Of Thread - Poem by Arthur Presley

How Careful One Must Be
Be Cautious
You Travel the Lifeline of Thread
You Began Your Journey Last Ago
Or Was It Before That?
One Doesn't Remember
The Journey's Been Long
Your Arms Are Weary
But You Insist on Outreaching
In the Next Segment of Breath
Your Destination?
Determination and Perseverance Your Goal
One Slip and It's Over
No Looking Back
No Letting Go
What's Up Ahead?
You only Creep Steadily
To the Next Forever.
