And I felt like I was standing in the middle of a pause.
I was suspended above the earth as I watched it inhale.
And the moment before exhale, it's eyes shifted to me.
And it was waiting,
and I knew it,
and I made the only expression I knew how to.
to the rock bottom,
not knowing if I would fly or if I would fall.
And I learned that I had to make a gesture,
yet remain unsure if I would in fact sprout wings,
before they would ever grow.
