~By Stephen Blackwood
I’m a man on the edge.
One more step, an inch closer to death.
Just a little further and I’ll fly off the ledge.
Straight into the welcoming arms of death.
With nobody to please there, I will finally rest.
Absolute freedom for one last irreversible step.
No duty to fulfil & no status to maintain.
I’m greedy for such prospect.
One final breath & I’ll jump.
I’ll fall & I’ll fly.
Out of your reach, free forever.
So, now I’ll set my heat’s beating symphony to rest.
For I’m nearing my final place.
For a long time, I’ve wanted this to end.
And so it will, once I jump off the edge.
