Freefall

I'd like to share this poem for all of those viewers of Super Soul Sunday who were moved enough by it to ask me where they could find it. Unfortunately, this poem is in a book that's now out of print, but here it is for you to share and enjoy.

Freefall

If you have one hour of air
and many hours to go,
you must breathe slowly.

If you have one arm's length
and many things to care for,
you must give freely.

If you have one chance to know God
and many doubts, you must
set your heart on fire.

We are blessed.

Every day is a chance.
We have two arms
Fear wastes air.
