Falling, Then Flying

You can’t fall in love

Without first accepting the reality that you may be let down.

You can take precautionary measures before you jump

But at some point you have to simply fall and be okay with falling.

Not attached to a chord to pull you back up

Or with a parachute on your back in case it all goes wrong.

Love is hoping they will catch you

While knowing there’s a chance they won’t.

If you look before you jumped though

You will still fall, but soon you will learn to fly.

When you truly let go

They won’t need to catch you.

They will simply sprout wings of their own

Jumping, falling, and flying all the same.
