Leap of Faith

That leap of faith
I sometimes take
are strides without my thinking
Instead of calculating length
I do some rapid blinking.
As I teeter on the edge of life
or death
between. Whichever.
I do not think before I leap
I pray that I'm a feather.
I tend to hold my breath and go
as inhales push you down.
grounding, planting both feet on reality;
The ground.
I'd rather see the glass half full
or imagine that there's liquid
leaping blind with higher hopes
And flying on that fiction.
For if i doubt, betray, mistrust
miscalculate the flight
Then I will sink
Godspeed goodnight
I tripped on my own doubts. 
So leaps of faith
I sometimes try
I do with little thought.
Because if I thought hard enough
I'd stop before I'd start.
'Cause I'd be scared 
too realistic 
to actually make the jump. 
For if I look before I leap
I'll end up on my rump.
