emotional

(no subject)


I take one more step towards the precipice
Wings spread
Face stoic
Back ramrod straight

I take one more step towards the precipice
Eyes cold
Step firm
Hands trembling

I take one more step towards the precipice
Feeling the pull
The tug
The tear of five years of memories

I take one more step towards the precipice
Wrapped in fear
Filled with tension
Feeling lonely

I take one more step towards the precipice
Knowing truly
This decision
Is what's best

I take one more step towards the precipice
Seeing arms
Of loved ones
Waiting for me

And yet, as I grow nearer my fears increase
Fear of losing those who have become so precious to me
Fear of no longer being a part of their lives
Fear of starting over

I take one more step towards the precipice
Tears flowing
Fears unfounded
Spirit soaring

Ahead of me is my future.
My bright and brilliant future.
