Free Falling

My heart's pounding.

It's almost time,

Time to jump.

What if something happens?

What if something goes wrong?

Too late,

It's time.

5... 4... 3... 2... 1...


I'm falling...



(Anyone else having a Tom Petty moment?)

Do it now.

No, wait.  It's too early.

Do it now.

No!  Wait.

Do it NOW!

I spread my arms.

I can feel the racing wind beneath me,

Running free.

That's what I am right now:


Too bad I can't fully enjoy my freedom,

Because only one thought is running through my mind.
