Learning to Dive

One day I finally knew that I could swim

in the blue of the sky.

That I was as strong as I said I was.

That my fears were teachers made just for me.

That there would always be cracks to slip through

and times of trembling.

Then I stood next to the lake,

a mirror of the blue sky,

and dove into its

reflection.
