It’s time to take a leap of faith. 
My heart moves twice as fast as I do.
A rush of adrenaline floods my body.
My ribs feel like they’re being poked by the air. 
Then I feel the kick,
and my descent is slowed. 
It’s more controlled than I realized.
I have more control than I realized. 
My feet touch the ground. 
Gravity humbles us all,
but the free-fall was fun while it lasted.
