He stood at the edge,
below hissed a thunderous snake awaiting.
Could he do it? Really just jump
into oblivion?
Perhaps he stood, not for fear.
In fact, he may be hoping
a friendly hand would reach him.

You see him now but maybe briefly.
You know he hurts that much deeply.
Why else would he be staring at a murderous river raging?

Would you walk? Away that is.
If you saw him, a stranger standing
at the edge of his world,
or would you extend a hand and call?

Will he turn? His shoulders show relief,
that finally, he was seen?

Would you be so kind?
