Leap Of Faith

by Julie Ackerson

You say yes
I say no.
I wait here,
You say go.
You jump,
I fall.
You're big,
I'm small.

You lift me up,
I crash myself down.
You say it's okay,
But I still let myself drown.

I know I should have listened.
I know I should have stayed.
In the end you were right,
and I was still blinded by my sight.

Although you may be
the complete opposite of me.
I know in my heart,
It was destined from the start.

Things Unseen

Ever since I was a little girl, I have wanted to be a writer. I have always loved the thought that my words matter. I have always loved the idea of writing what I could never say out loud. I was shy, I was sad, and worst of all, I knew it. My notebooks were my prized possession. Each one had it's own personality and when I needed a friend, I knew that I would always have one. Over time, and as technology evolved, those notebooks turned into files and those files turned into folders and then I realized that the internet existed. I could not only write whatever I wanted, but I could share it with the world. I could do anything; I could be anyone. And that's how I turned my dreams, into reality. My name is Julie, and this is my dream.
