One tentative step
Cut through the misty fog

The internal battle rages

“Why am I doing this?”
“It’s the only way out.”

One careful step
Into the falling rain

The logic starts to fail

“There are other ways.”

One innocent step
Closer to the edge

The resolve barrels through

“The only way out
To get what I want.”

One last determined step
Toward the all-consuming sea

Toes feeling out over the edge


One final breath
Before the end

Arms out, knees bent

“Oh, god.”

Headfirst into freedom
All regrets left behind
