under the wall

those who avoid the shallows and the deep
will find themselves with no place left to hide
and with no human partner to confide
nor any memories they'd want to keep
but you and i who choose to make the leap
know how and when to take the proper side
and what we knew before we took the ride
is what we take into the final sleep
just so the answer comes before the choice
you make the dancer enter through the door
and bow to each of those who wait to speak
until such time there is a better voice
to say the words that others will adore
and bring to life the happy and the meek
