Read the signs

The signs can only be seen if you look
If you know how to read
It's a cycle
You can read these things but only if you want to see
Most people choose not to see
It's too much work
The ironic thing is that people value work
Just not the kind that means anything in the end
I don't want to fall
This is why I'm learning to read
This is another art that must be learned through practice
There's signs of slippage long before the fall
Look for slips
The slips themselves are not the fall
The slips are the signs
The slips are telling you to turn
To grab on to something turning
To charge back
To higher ground
You don't have to fall
But to not fall you have to read the signs
