Favorite Quote:
Don't cross oceans for people who wouldn't jump puddles for you.

To reach.
For something never reached before.
To grasp, the goal of want.
To slip on the last line of desire.
To fall, far below.
To brush yourself off.
To have the courage to climb agan.

This poem was inspired by another poet using almost the same format. To read her poetry inspired this poem of which I am proud of. Thanks to Rebkha M., Ossining for inspiring this poem
