the jump

February 2, 2018

Have you ever wondered,
What it would feel like
To jump off a cliff
With no one in sight

Gliding through the air
With nothing holding you back,
But just a little weight
From the chute on your back

The weightless feeling of flight
In control of your life,
With nothing but cloth
To keep you alive

Falling towards earth
With great speed,
Looking at the ground
And hoping you don’t become a seed

Then finally pulling the cord
And drifting ever so slowly,
to the final destination,
the lonely ground
