Body of Water by Fahd AlSaleh

It hurts
The climb
My legs burn
As I ascend
.
.
.
The Path was difficult
But it shall pay off
I believe
I have faith
It shall work

.
.
.
As I approach the summit
The cool breeze
Runs smoothly on my skin
The tips of my toes
feel the the sharp edge
I look at the horizon
I inhale deeply
and take the leap
.
.
.
The fall is faster
Than anticipated
It is getting closer quickly
I feel the same cool breeze
But now it’s cutting my skin
I meet my demise
Face to face
with a body of water
.
.
.
A body in water
motionless
Drifting away
with the current
.
.
.
I was wrong
