I finally fell.
It was time. I was patient, waiting, observing, wishing. Then, it happened…thrilling!
I emerged and fell. One of billions, yet unique, especially in my path. Only I would fall here. No other. Just—
It was over too soon. I hit ground and that was it. It went fast, I couldn’t appreciate it. I experienced as much as I could, but then it was done.
Still, my journey had purpose. I was soaked up and through me came growth, joy, love. My experience was short and full and from me came something bigger.
Life from life.
