jump.

tentative, feeble
steps forward;
looking over
my shoulder;
doubting.
should i
return?
at least
the old ways
are predictable;
stay safe,
little one.

trembling, heavy
steps forward;
spending so
much time
in ‘what if’
would have
kept me
from falling
before.
but.
what if?
and.

light, temporary
steps forward;
can i jump?
i don’t
want you
to catch me.
but will
you wait?
watch me
fly? and
walk next
to me.
