I Jumped

24 Apr 2015 life

Once, I climbed a tree
and, balanced
on a tiny platform,
I froze in fear.

Then, eyes closed,
blindly trusting,
I inched forward,
and jumped.

I fell, unseeing,
and something
caught me.

Safe,
I let myself sink
into relief,
and failure.

Knowing
what I know now,
would I try again?

YES!
