I get this urge to jump off a cliff.

Every time I see one I walk to the edgeΒ and chicken out.

I look at how far down it goes. It's like grand canyon but smaller.

I see the river and take a step forward. I see the sky and take a step back.

L'apple Du Vide

I take another step back as I think of my family and friends.

I turn around as I tell myself one dayΒ I'll be happy.
