On the Edge of a Pool

On the Edge of a Pool…
Toes wet
And the voice arises
“its not safe”
“Its too cold”
“To cold to survive”
And I listen to the voice
Allowing myself to believe.
Fearfully trapped.
On the edge of a pool
A moment of choice
Do I dive in?
Do I go slowly down the steps?
Do I Stay?
Frozen in the voice
Every Time
Every Time the same choice.
Every time the hesitation.
The “toes-wet” moment
And Then…
Into the dive…
The duvet is off
I’m out of Bed
A new day has begun
