Work Your Dream

Living on the Outer Edge

Dedicated to all the “One Room World” People like me whose lives have been altered by illness and disability

Living On The Outer Edge

There is a pane of glass I see

It stands somewhere between you and me

It’s living on the outer edge

Spending your life on a narrow ledge

Although our lives are intertwined

The pane of glass leaves a vivid line

Like children pressing their faces to glass

It leaves an impression that does not last

On the other side of this glass lies

A world that never hears my cries

Laying on the inside, looking out I see

A life I wish could somehow include me

Learning to live on the narrow ledge

Learning to live on the outer edge

Is a very lonely life for a person to  live

Sometimes more than one’s heart can give
