Take the Step

Take the Step

I stand on the precipice
The place where if I leap
I leave behind all that has given me life
Yet have I had life
When I’ve stood alone?
All alone in my self-reliance and my achievement
I see that if I leap there is a great valley before me
I can’t even see the end of it
Yet there are also great mountains
Incredible forests
The running river
And wind
I can’t stand here any longer
Nor will I retreat
I step off an edge into the unknown
Feeling a breeze beneath my wings
That I didn’t even know I had
I breathe in glad

 K, Duane Carter 9-1-11
