Falling & Flying


They say it is a choice,
to fall or to fly,
but sometimes it is not.

Sometimes you have obligations
and responsibilities.
Commitments.

Sometimes there are just things.

The things bog you down,
you are drowning,
falling,
breathless.

Deeper and deeper
without any escape.

And it's scary.

But, sometimes you have to fall.
Because in the course of falling, you may just realize,
if you open your eyes

and breathe.

Breathe deeply.

You can do it.

You will do it.
