It's interesting how the end
can be so easy
like crushing a rose
between a toddlers sticky fingers
or dropping an egg
and watching it smash on the floor

The cleanup isn't necessary
apathy breeds on broken things
forgetting that you ever cared at all
then it is finally ok to say
that the time has come

don't mind the cracks
they were there all along
invisible to the eye
but written on the heart and soul
pre-mapped out fracture lines
so when you drop you shatter completely

climb high so you can ensure a good break
shower your paints far and wide
a good twenty foot radius
creates a lovely tapestry
for all the stories that you held inside

and then close your eyes
take a step forward, then two
feeling the cool and quiet harmony
between gritty surface behind
and the soft and beckoning breeze
like the contrast between yesterday's memories
and tomorrow's aimless longings

Lastly, take the plunge before you
dive into currents that are not unlike water
yet carry leaves and aide fragile wings
Remember not to scream as you near the surface
this is what you were made for
so make sure to embrace your release
