Day 217: Falling

Why fear the fall?
When each step
builds you wings.

Grabbing each rung,
developing the strength
in your arms
and gave you
the power to
lift yourself up.

What’s in a drop?
When you are sure
that your legs
will absorb the impact.

Your feet slipping
impressions that
you left on
your journey.

Why fear the fall?
When falling is
only perspective.
