Stepping Out - Poem by james d nall,jr

Stepping out, I feel the air rush by
I'm falling and let out a sigle sigh
Downward, the ground races up to me
Plunging into the darkness, I feel free
Memories rush through my brain
Reminiscent of that long black train
Racing into its dark tunnel
Thoughts in my brain quickly funnel
Its all over, I'm through with you now
Only the good memories will my brain allow
As I fall farther and so much faster
I suddenly realize, I've created my disaster
So much pain, so much loss
Did I brush my teeth, Did I floss?
Why would it matter, what am I thinking?
While in this fluid darkness, I'm ever sinking
No more bad do I now consider
After all they say, suicide is so bitter
But now my eyes open to bright sunlight
And know it was only a dream from last night
