Anything is Possible!

With Hope, Faith, and Perseverance

Flight #writephoto

Leave a comment

I’m inspired by Prajakta’s poem. Even with a fear of heights, I have taken a leap of faith. I find myself flying gently, eyes open, not crashing hard. And when I tumble to the ground, I rest for a bit, then leap again to catch the wind.

An Armchair Perfectionist

It takes a lot to fight gravity,

The first law of nature that we adapt to.

To keep our feet firmly grounded,

Lest we crash and fall.

But oh, the exhilaration of jumping in the air,

Of the innocent abandonment of playing on a swing,

A leap of faith, if nothing else.

Take the plunge to soar up,

Feel the gusts of wind bringing out wings hitherto invisible.

Don’t turn your back to increasingly piercing light of the sun,

Don’t shut your eyes and find yourself astray.

Try again if you crash hard,

And let the freedom of the flight be your guide.
