Fighting the Fall

Be still
Close your eyes
One deep breath
What's the worst that could happen

Take the dive
Toes on the edge
One more sharp breath
Get ready
And pull

Falling fast and hard
Clinging to the cords
Everything a colorful blur
Flying like a bird

A bird
A laugh of joy
No more screams of fear
A cheering victory
I did it
Who knew
How easy it could be
To fight off fear
And fly free
