Just Jump!

Posted on April 3, 2012 at 8:10 PM

i sometimes come across

that bit of trail,

that little way of path

that seems to lead

to places 

loud with life.

A place where

rocks sit atop each other

balanced and showing

a way.

Something inside me 

tells me to go

the opposite way.


When you get to the edge

of that cliff,

where it seems

that the other world

is only a ledge away,

just jump!


And then when you 

open your eyes,

and discover

clouds have 

borne you up,

sigh and be thankful

for losing yourself in life.

I love it. I have spent my life going the opposite way. I have lived a live not according to the rules I was "supposed" to follow. Did I miss things? Yes. Do I regret? Sometimes. Would I change it if I could? No. I am who I am because of the choices I made. As you are the wind in my sails.
