You let go.

You let go,
terrified beyond sensation.
But what are your options?
Here you will implode.

Will gravity
or the hand of God
grab you by your ankles
and slam you
to the cold, hard ground?

Freefall.
Stomach dives.
Head first you fly,
then jerk upright.
No parachute.
no hand of God,
no miracle,
but your own wings
guide you
not to heaven,
but to earth,
which is green
for the first time
ever.
