NaPoWriMo #17-20: surrender

Don't think from the title of this post that I'm giving up on NaPoWriMo; rather, I'm giving myself a get-out-of-jail-free card. 'Cause this is my blog, so I can do that!


Trust doesn’t walk a
tightrope with no net; it jumps
out into the void.

Here am I clinging
to the ledge, both feet planted
praying for a net.

Someday I will stop
trying to surrender, be
willing to just jump.

***

Wind does not break a
yielding sapling; new leaves
grow after spring’s storm.

=D that's exactly what I thought.
Just a few more days left!

I love the beginning of this one.
