Free Fall

I could so easily let go,

allow it all to slide through my fingers.

I could free fall from this mess of a life;

wave after wave of air blow through my being

scattering my energy  to all directions.

I can feel the call to surrender.

I am at times so tired—

hold my arms out and just drop.

Yet, there is something so deep inside,

so strong and resolute

that I cannot submit to anything

but another step forward,

dragging  weary limb after limb

until I can again—

rise up.
