LEAP! (a poem)

 

Take the leap,
Into the space that is in your mind,
The place that you have built over time,
Into a magnificent structure that one could climb.
Like taking the smallest of your tender toes,
Slightly edging it over the steep rocky face,
You find yourself perched precariously upon.

Staring out over your wide open life,
Looking straight ahead you search,
With one toe,
Then another,
Until you feel the slightest crag of stone.
Cold and jagged ,
You grasp it with the edge of your feet,
And slide down to extend yourself,
Into the next space you cannot see past.
