Just Leap

Just Leap

Subtly emerging many Augusts ago
       Gently tossing around
             Tumbling over
       Turning inside and out
             Cooped up,
Inflamed into a raging debate.
Would vocal expression discharge
                     Torment
                         Or
               LIBERATION?
Pressure builds in the mind.
Is a megaphone handy?
             Joyous glee,
       Or fall silently to the floor.
Such dismal lack of courage
Calling for one mountain of faith.
Climb atop and leap
       Just leap, just leap,
                      If only.

– Ketan Goldman.
