Everything falls some time.

The stars fall into black holes.

Satellites fall from orbit.

Civilizations rise and fall.

People fall regularity.

Physically, Spiritually, Mentally.


Into the abyss.

I tumble. I fall. I reach out.

There is no one there.

I dig in, I claw for a handhold.

I arrest the fall as best I can.

I recover. I regroup.

I begin the climb again.

More fatigued than ever I begin the journey to top.

Hopeful that I have the strength to make it to the goal,

Before I grow so weary that I just let go.
