your whole life

spent tethered,

holding onto the wall

safe, without fear

until you slip,

viewed as a mistake,

and you fall


then, you start to wonder

what if I fell farther?

what if I crash more often?

until you start to crave it

you want to feel the fall

you want that experience of freedom

you want to welcome that rush
