“Take Flight” by Mary Morrissey

French poet Guilliame Apollinaire wrote a poem entitled, “Come To The Edge.”

Come to the edge, he said.
We are afraid, they said.
Come to the edge, he said.
They came to the edge,
He pushed them and they flew.

Come to the edge, Life said.
They said: We are afraid.
Come to the edge, Life said.
They came. It pushed them…
And they flew.

If life were inviting you come to the edge, what would life be saying to you? You might be feeling afraid. But what if life is saying come to the edge of yourself? Come to the edge of possibility. Come to the edge.

What would your edge be? What I know is that all you have to do is ask the question and something will occur to you.

If you do come to the edge of yourself and your fear, you may just find all along you have always known how to fly.

Take Flight,

Mary
