For whatever’s coming

Breath held

Chest tight

Eyes closed

Trying to imagine what it would feel like

To jump out into space

Trusting

Knowing that jumping

Is somehow better than staying

Rooted

Glued

To these foundations

Once a support

Now shifting and crumbling.

Jump, jump!

How the moon glows

And ripples the water below

As I trust the air

To bring me down safely

Somewhere, on the other side.
