“No one is watching but you have to leap,” from “Leap Before You Look” by W.H. Auden


I have an itch but I looked before I leaped,

And in the fear crept…

But I had to do it anyway,

So while everyone was looking away,

I took a running start,

Now all they see is me falling apart.

Little do they know…

I’ve already landed on the other side with both my soles.
