On The Edge

I’m standing on the edge of the cliff

one step from falling into the reefs

eyes closed, breeze gently caressing my face,

listening to the waves crashing, slowly eroding the base,

like how these emotions wash away

a part of me day by day.

Tempted to take one step and join the currents

to be embraced by the vast ocean,

to finally succumb to my endless negativity.

After all, don’t we all belong to the sea?
