Climbing the stairs,
My heart pounds nervously.
I walk out onto the hard green plastic.
It rubs my feet
As I give a small bounce;
An experiment.
I finally work up the courage
To jump off.
Twirling, flipping, spinning.
I fall through the air,
Landing seamlessly
Into the cool water.

You know I didn't find the courage to jump off the board until I reached adulthood, and I still can't dive off it, but I'll happily jump. Your writing is easy to read and understand, I like that! Although my passion is lyrical poetry, yours is nice to read.
