Standing up

by Christa Layr

Although, of course, falling is easy
and more than often thus occurs,
its consequence might make you queasy
because your conscience blinks and blurs.

The effort to keep up and stand
is worth the pain in many cases.
Should accidents get out of hand
bad marks can leave their ugly traces.

The balance between wrong and right
usually wavers day by day.
The world is not just black and white,
but knows all shades between in grey.
