By Charles Robert Lindholm   

 An improvised life

no following footsteps

like the rest of us

it’s not what we’ve heard

professed to us


A high wire act

meant to thrill you

so daring and bold

it might kill you


A dangerous course

on an uncharted sea

too scary for those

who will never live free


An improvised life

with no musical score

a life played by ear

like none sung before

as our hearts hum softly

and dream of more
