The poetry of Steven Harz / “Falling”

holding hands train track

Falling 

 

Today

my promise to you

is to overcome

my fear of heights

tomorrow

so that I can begin to

climb and float and soar

eyes open and looking down

so that I can practice

repeatedly

falling off of rooftops

falling out of trees and

falling from balloons

until I have earned

and learned to live with

my cuts and bruises and

scars

like badges of honor

that show the world

that I am able to

fall in love with you

properly

“Falling” originally appeared in my book, ‘Gas Station Road Map’ – available at Amazon in paperback and eBook.
