That which divides

If only that which divides
what is
from what could be
were always this obvious --
a fence, perhaps,
that we could see,
and choose to step over,
or not; if only
we could assess in advance
what advantage might accrue;
what safety might be lost
were we to cross that barrier
or follow it
to its logical conclusion,
to the tree, or the cliff
that stands at the edge
of life as we know it...
