Above and beyond – Poem

Above the clouds

Beyond the eye reach

Where 10 000 ft is

Ready for the jump

Adrenaline rush

Rapid breathing

Fastened heart beat

Sweaty hands

Close your eyes

Tell your mind it’s all you want

Ready for the jump

Get your feet out of the plane

Inhale deeply

Calm yourself

Remember what you’ve learnt

And then the push

You are in the skies

Free as a bird

Falling with full speed

Seconds away till the parachute opens

If it opens at all.
