Leap of Faith

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.
