Treasure Island

chance .........


jumper


standing
the cars look like ants
the wind is harsh up here
it bites through my clothes
chilling me to the bone

rock
hello
i kick you with my toe
falling i loose sight of you
before you hit the ground

thinking back
to why i am up here?
to jump thats right
i am not sad
mearly observant

note
i take you from my pocket
and set you down
so they will read
but they will not understand

sigh
this is where
i should have second thoughts
but i do not
i am not sad

stepping off
i begin to drop
so many things
to observe so
quickly

faces
shocked
confused
most do not see
they watch their tv

lights
become a blur
so beautiful
the stars
and cars

life
goes by before my eyes
but i do not
watch it
i am not sad

but what is this
a tear?
no time to observe
the ground is near
the end is here

rock
hello
yes i kicked you
but i am not sad
for my life is finally over

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
