Jump?

Standard

I ask the question “why?” a lot.  Perhaps that is the reason I connect with the young ones so easily.  I question the outside world most days.  But, as I question the inside world that is me, it gets tricky.  It can consume me.

Do I?
Will I?
When will I?
Why don’t I?
Why did I?
Why won’t I?
Why didn’t I?
What was I thinking?
Jump.  Don’t jump.  What’s the worst that could happen?  Sigh.  The problem is, I know the worst that can happen.  It is so hard to recover.

But, isn’t this different?
Haven’t I learned anything?
Aren’t I ready yet?
Will I ever be brave enough?
Will I forever question their motives?

Jump.  Don’t jump.  What’s the best that could happen?  Smile.  The problem is, I have no idea.  That scares me.  That excites me.
