A Poet Never Sleeps

One day you will be faced with the impossible. When you become afraid, become inspired.

Sky Diving Without a Parachute



It’s  a downward slope

You don’t notice how far you’ve gone

You just keep going

It doesn’t feel like work

Till you look up


Falling towards many points

One or two I'm not so sure

Others I’m positive of

Yet can’t land

Because someone’s already there

 I don’t mind

Society says I ought to

Yet still I fall



There’s a few that I can see

Are safe to land

Yet only on sunny days

When the wind is blowing right

Only then can I see the target

But for the most part

It isn’t a risk-free option


I could land today

If I felt like it

But I won’t

It’s foolish but I won’t

Because maybe the best part

Is falling

Not knowing where to land

That uncertainty
