Do you cut it close to the edge

or keep a conservative distance

Do you take risks or fence sit


Living on the edge is not for me

but risk taking, stretching it out

is what living is really all about


Just following the masses

not thinking for ourselves

seems safe boring and average!


Daring to think outside the square

is really living life if you dare

mix things up a bit, try to be different


Add some more diversity

to enjoy a life well lived

spicy colourful and exciting


Don’t die wondering full of regret

tick your bucket list off quick

don’t hesitate or it’ll be too late

friday foto fun – the edge


  1. Probably a bit conservative and at other times a bit edgy. Do like the last verse though, “not wanting to die full of regret….” We don’t know what the next day will bring. Need to check off those bucket list goals as quickly as possible. Great poem to ponder about on a wet Sunday in Canada.

  2. I don’t like fence sittin’…the tops of the fences are pokey in the butt! 😮 😀
    And I don’t like masses…too crowded and not thinkin’ goin’ on. Often no open minds, open hands, or open hearts in the masses. 😦
    Much rather be livin’ life and trying new things! 🙂
    GREAT poem, Kate! 🙂
    HUGS!!! 🙂

  3. I’ve had enough edges for several lifetimes. Though there are a few things I would like to do and places to visit. I will not create a bucket list. What will be, will be.

  4. I am definitely in the process of living edgy again. It was a point in time I did exactly what I wanted without the fear of being judged and I certainly felt my best then. Thank you Kate for this blog.
