Taking that first step
Opening up, asking for help, recovering
Leaving, starting over, forgiving
Whatever your challenge
It’s like stepping off the wing of a plane
It’s beyond fear
No one to hold onto to
The ground rushing up, spiraling
Adrenaline, sensory overload
Even breathing is forgotten
And then the chute opens
Look around you
You’re alive, the view is amazing
Everything is clearer
Strength and self-confidence are returning
You are in control
You can direct your path
You can choose where you land
Just take that first step
Let go
