Across

So there it is
The answer to my prayers
The answer that eluded me
Though it’s always been sitting here

I sensed it
In my mind
I felt it
In my heart

All along

Now I stand here
At the edge of
An enormous ravine
Wondering

How to get across

I’ve tried before
Failed attempts
Bloody limbs
Fractured skull

Bandaged. Repaired.

Dare I try again
Yes
I’m already dead
Breathing is not living

Achieving your goals is..
