Teeter Totter Tumble?

Teeter totter
Trying not to tumble
Holding the plates of life
On flimsy sticks
That threaten to snap
Wind pounding on the stacks
And shaking my perch
A tight rope gaining ice
Suggestions are given
To ease my burden
Jettisoning plates
That others think are pointless
Yet may be dear to me
Every step met with fear
And a chorus of boos and cheers
Creating a maelstrom
That threatens the whole act
Teeter totter
Will I stay or tumble?

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.
