Juggler Riding a Unicycle -Written Thursday 18th March 2021 (Aged 46)

Juggler Riding a Unicycle

in an utterly selfish way
and without,
pushing myself
in a shining light
i feel like,
i fall into the background
and i feel like,
i just have to keep going
i know,
it is so selfish of me
but that is how it feels
i have never found myself
as a point
where i feel –
connected to the foreground
maybe that is selfish
and maybe,
that is my selfish ego
pride, or some other angst
but part of me,
does think, when me,
i know i am loved
and i am deeply adored
but i feel like a juggler
riding a unicycle
up the steepest hill
everyone thinks i can do it
but i wonder, is this my skill
