Once you start there’s no turning back.
Not a glance, or a slight pause, even if in a jiffy,
Even 1/100th of a second’s worth of hesitation
Sends a ripple that tells the Universe, “Maybe not.”
“Maybe, I’m not sure.” “Maybe I’m not ready.”
You have to just take the leap, full-throttle.
Let your heart jump to your throat
And your stomach drop into your feet.
There’s no turning back. There’s only here, now.
