Jump

Somedays
I think
Just fucking jump
What more harm can it do
I mean
At this rate
What do I even have to lose

I wonder
If I tripped
Over at the edges of the earth
Would I fly
If not
Would I land with my face in the dirt?

I like to think
Maybe I wouldnít
Iíd land with my feet set firmly apart
I could try
Land a trick or two
Maybe I should get a running start

In the wind
A weightless gift
I think Iíd be exhilarated with liberation
But if itís a leap
A jump to my death
Does that make for a better persuasion?

If I could
I would bottle
The sheer thrill of a free fall
If I could
With my wild spirit
I know that I would risk it all
