via Daily Prompt: Risky




Risky was the path,

I couldn’t see beyond

The bend.


Risky was the step,

The first step I took

Into the deep end.


Risky was the jump,

I took the leap

Of faith.


Risky was the moon,

And only seeing in it

Your face.


I got lost in the moon,

As I got lost on the path.

When dawn finally came I

Was Burned by the sun’s wrath.


Taking in a deep breath,

I jumped off the cliff.

I jumped to fly free,

But I live full of what ifs.


If the moon hides behind clouds,

Or the path ends in flames,

I’d take the risk of burning,

Over remaining the same.
