A Few Seconds of Courage
I jumped off a mountain top
Hoping I’d be caught not dropped
For when I fell,
Though I didn't know I started,
That you would only catch me half-hearted.
I was so happy when I felt this new glow
I should of know how fast away this would go.
I tumbled down that rocky hill,
But did I jump of my own free will?
Or was it my heart whom I obeyed?
The top of the mountain, now I wish I stayed.
I fell to the ground,
and laid there for sometime,
until I could fake the words
I picked myself up and dusted me off
Then carefully mounted the first big rock.
I climbed and I climbed,
Until I was back to the start
I began to mend my broken heart.
I looked over the horizon, to the setting day and
more mountains stood in my way.
Many more daring jumps I shall try,
I will be dropped
but Never will I cry.
Each time that I jump, I’ll learn from my mistakes,
Because a few seconds of courage
is all that it takes.
