Walkin’ on a wire
riskin’ all that I got
just to get a lil’ higher
erryday I don’t stop
over vallies filled with fire
winds blow and rain drops
I’ll be walkin’ on this wire
all the way to the top
In the middle of my life
I found myself alone
walkin’ on a wire
my dreams carried me along
I held to every moment
with a tooth and nail
hoping to be strong
hoping not to fail
looking to the stars
to guide me through the dark
to give me but a clue
to light a little spark
In the middle of my life
I wanted all to end
and yet each day I woke
determined to ascend
I knew I must go on
I knew I should not quit
for this is but a course
in God’s prerequisite

!שילוב יפה יקרה ואסף
I felt your words also were speaking about me Kira, thank you for sharing something so precious
Walkin’ on a Wire … almost like Walkin’ on a Fire .. this is living life … risk, adventure, ups and downs, dark and light, laughing and crying … Thoughtful, inspiring and enchanting poem, or if you will, a beautiful song!!
So, it means one of these days was your birthday … one more May girl? Happy birthday … full of love, peace, health and humor …
Savoir garder un équilibre pour traverser le fil de la vie..
Ni le temps ni le vent ne me fera tomber tel un château de carte…
La résistance et la résilience sont les guides de demain…
Superbement bien défini @Kira (Yakira) Fulks 🙇♂💞🙇♂
This reminded me of Zarathustra of Nietzsche-fame when speaking of tight-rope walking. Zarathustra … much the same thoughts and hopes.
… beautifully revealed and said!
have to keep on going never give up 🙏
Beautiful work, well done, powerful and hopeful message, never give up:))
nice job! chorus is catchy … contrast with spoken word is powerful .. message is one we can all use and relate to .. life can seem that precarious at times .. fraught with dangers seen and unseen .. with a little bit of spark .. hope .. faith .. we do find our ways .. really like and enjoyed audio .. good luck with its success Kira! 🙂
