~Aren’t We All Afraid Of Falling?~

When we’re older we’ll tell our kids “be careful not to fall.”

Often they’ll say “I’m not afraid.”

But aren’t we all afraid of falling?

I see it everyday.

People falling in and out of love.

People falling to their vices.

Falling out of communication.

Falling for the lies we tell ourselves.

Sometimes I think there’s some irony in our fear of falling.

We’re surrounded by it so much

We follow through our falls like facts of the matter, treating it as terrifying gospel. It’s possible,

That we’re not afraid of the fall

But rather the impact.

The weight.

The results.

That grave i dug with my own two hands, without the intention of laying in it.

Aren’t we all afraid of falling?

No, but we should be.

For I found falling too fun for it to fall out of fashion, and now I’ve found falling to be my new passion.

What I’m trying to say, is I love you.

Says the acorn to the ground.

I’m saying that I’ll trust you.

Just hold me safe and sound.
