About fulfilling one's life and doing the first step.

Courage.

 

Every beginning starts with an end. So they say. Nothing too profound, but still, it makes sense. In a way... Who does not want a better life? Well… but I still fear it. Then again, it‘s a sacrifice needed. Right? Achieving the goal striven for. Everything bad till now will transform to a better end. Leaving the pain becoming a better man. All it takes is the first step. Seeking the ultimate happiness. Escaping the sorrow. They say no need to think too much. Just do it. Execute what you want. Now to this moment, an opportunity I grasped with my own hands, a time I had planned for too long, but shared with the wrong people, as they discouraged me. I knew. I‘m now alone. With this I can show my bravery.

I feel the breeze on the rooftop.

As I stood there looking down on the traffic lights. Reminding me of starsgazing while lying in a meadow next to some trees. Only now it‘s just from above. Standing on the highest branch.

The wind is cooling my head. Making me feel. Thinking much less. Letting off the past. Forgetting the rest. Giving my best. Letting go of the load. Stretching my arms. Embracing the fall.

Taking the first step.

Onward.

But, not forward.

Because to courage I could not anymore confess.
