Edge of Tomorrow

I stand on the edge of tomorrow

A tortuous precipice

Uncertainty howling

Fear chills the bone

Sweat breaks out from every pore

There is only one way forward

With eyes closed and arms spread

I take the plunge.

  1. Wow!!!! Now that’s what I call taking the bull by the horn! And you sure nail the bull right in the centre of both eyes! Though sometimes some decisions are tough to be made, we just must close our eyes and take that plunge…excellent piece and very educating…

  2. Pretty’s as pretty does but beautiful on the other hand’s just plain ‘Be-U-ti-ful’! The use of imageries here, I find totally appealing, breathtaking and very hypnotic! You brought this Doc, you really did and am completely drawn to yet another of your masterpieces! So profoundly brilliant! Double thumbs up Sir! LOL

    ‘I stand at the edge of tomorrow’, with tomorrow representative of a Peak, and the Narrator….pretty terrified of great heights! He finally does muscle up just the right amount of courage, which Ambrose Redmoon defines as ‘Not the total absence of fear, but rather; the judgment that something else is more important than one’s fear’! Todd Bellemore on the other hand says ‘Courage is facing your fear, Stupidity’s fearing nothing’! LMAO!

    In all, we gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face says Eleanor Roosevelt and the Narrator, taking that great leap, or a chance if you may and plunging into the unknown, an uncharted territory; is by far the most corageous, wisest and smartest of all! He’ll come out valiant, victorious…a winner! No risks, no rewards after all so why the heck not?! LOL

You see, it was the blindness of the eye I was plagued with, as much as you were with deafness when you asked ‘Did someone just say something’?! To which I responded ‘Who wants to know…?! So, this mind thingy’s all YOU! You need to go look into that! I dash you, spare me that! LMAO!
