i've been jumping from the tops of buildings, for the thrill of the fall
ignoring sound advice and any thought of consequence
my bones are shattered,
my pride is shattered
and in the midst of this self-inflicted pain
i can see my beautiful rescue

1/13/08, i knew everything i needed to know in that moment:

i'm done apologizing for being lucky,
but i hesitate to call anything a breakthrough because i tend to take one step forward and three giant leaps backward
