I Won't Look Down

I Won’t Look Down

I did everything I could to understand you,
With your hard and fast, etched into stone truths.
You want it in black and white
When life writes out in gray
It doesn’t work that way.

They tried to raise me up in a house like this,
Love you for your fellow man with an asterisk.
When it was time for words
Why is it I never heard you say.

    I won’t look down, but to help you up.
    With the tables turned I would ask as much.
    I would rather trip and fall with my eyes too high
    Then to the sink to the bottom of the great divide.

Love is love is love.
