Don't Forget to Wear a Helmet

Don't Forget to Wear a Helmet

We're there.
Top of the ramp,
crest of the rollercoaster's lift hill,
poised to commit to -- submit to -- the will
of gravity.

Let go.
Fly and fall
with stomach-dropping fear.
Lean into curves, anticipate apogees.
Transform possibility into reality.

This poem was inspired by Seth Godin's post today, Drop In. I especially liked this line, "The worse you can do is half."
