I Jumped

Standing at the edge of a cliff

That I always knew I’d peer over someday

After years of preparation

I’m ready to take this dive

And flee the hoard of wolves

Always trailing behind

Scared to death to leap

But more afraid to turn around

So with nothing but faith

I jumped

Never again to touch the ground

    Isn’t it funny how no matter how much we prepare for it we always end up scared of the inevitable? I don’t know the specifics of what inspired this poem, and I am glad you took the courage to jump. Taking that leap is never easy.
