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.
