I have to jump

Standing on the edge of a cliff, I contemplate my fate.

Do I choose a life that is safe, known, always the same, predictably on course; like the days of time. Flowing from one into the other, endlessly.

“Is this my fate?” 

 

My head and heart is in serious doubt.

For a life of promise beacons;

filled with uncertainty, filled with risk, and only a whisper of potential fun.

“Is this my destiny?”

 

Can I turn my back on a life I’ve always known for an uncertain one?

As I stand on the edge, my heart beats hard and fast. My breath rasps painfully in my chest.

 

The whisper of promise fills me with excitement. It makes me glow from within my core. Who knows what’s right or wrong?

The only thing sure is how I feel at this moment; uncertain, confused and excited in the face of the unknown.

As I stand on the edge of the cliff, my fate is sealed. I have to jump!
