"There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind." -C.S. Lewis


Fear tickles and taunts you,
Crisp air flows through your hair,
Fingers,
Toes.
Your feet inch over the edge of the chasm of unknown.
Though the bottom is a mystery,
Don't hesitate; Dive in!
Leap into the air and allow yourself to
Just
Be
Crazy.
Take that ponytail clip out,
Rip those tight shoes off.
Be free.
Forget regret!
Take a little chance,
Make a little risk.
Don't be afraid;
If God plans that you shall fall,
I will be there to catch you.
Forget your cares;
Leave them in your worry skin,
And just
LIVE
YOUR
LIFE.

You show promise as a writer. I especially like the bits where you combine words in ways that wouldn't work in prose, but make perfect sense in the poem. I especially love the sounds of the line "Forget regret". :)

Once again I love your work. :) This one is filled with inspiration. I also like from you arranged it; the way you separated your sentences it added emphasis that had an added effect to your work that accompanied with your style it boosted your poem to a point of perfection. I also love the fact that the last three letters are in caps which makes it even more beautiful! Keep up the fabulous work! :)

Wow very inspiring! Love the variety of sentence type; the way you 'broke' them up really emphasized it more...and the fact the last 3 lines are in caps. Great Job!
