Launching Off (Day 25 of NaPoWriMo 2017)

So the good news is, those nerves were overcome from yesterday. The bad news is, you’re hurtling through the atmosphere at hundreds of miles per hour….and it feels like it’s going to continue forever. This is your thought process as launching off is underway:

Launching Off


Bits and pieces flash by

as winds vigorously pull and pry,

unsuccessfully attempting to end your journey early.


Rushed breaths,

with barely anytime in between,

the world feels like it’s leaving you,

no, you’re the one leaving it,

and yet it feels like eternity has come and gone,

and still you’re strapped in,

whether things go right or wrong.


Anguished stress,

there’s nothing you can do,






because launching off has been taking forever,

but the good news is?


You’re finally free,

onto your next endeavor.
