I wish I was braver
I wish I could strap courage to me
and wear it like an armor
I spend seconds and minutes
and days and the culmination of my life
dreaming of the next step
jumping out of the nest.
I keep forgetting that when
it comes down to stepping at the edge of
the cliff and looking down
I get the worst vertigo
I want to be able to spread my arms
and let the wind take me
want not to collect rocks in my shoes
the further I walk,
but instead be able to shake them out
I want to steady my shaking
hands and wipe my sweaty palms
and watch flowers sprout
from the places that were nervous
I wish I was brave.
skip rocks on a lake
I wish I was brave
