A Step.

I think I am standing on the precipice looking down.

It’s dark down there.

I step forward preparing for the weight of my body to sink me to the blackness below.

Instead I hear the soft thud of my next step forward.

I’m not at a precipice.

I’ve just begun to walk now.

I’m nowhere near the top.

I am at my first plateau.

I don’t know why it’s so dark, but that’s not important to me.

I could walk this path with my eyes closed – it’s so dark anyways.

One step.

Another step.

If I keep walking, I will reach my first step up.

I will take my next step up, then another.

Then I will run as fast as I can for as long as I can.

To the top. Towards the sun.

Then I will jump and feel the stars shine in my belly.

I will close my eyes in the freedom of falling

And never, ever


stop dreaming.
