"" Writer's Wanderings: Courage

Thursday, January 09, 2020


One foot found the bottom step,
              Hidden, just under the water.
                           He paused and looked back again.

Each step took him closer to the top.
              He looked down at the water and swallowed hard.
                           His heart beat faster.

It looked a lot higher from here.
              Carefully, he sat down.
                           One last thought about backing out.

No. They were all there. Waiting,
              Watching for him.
                           Daddy had his arms open wide.

He let go.
