Premature rescue

To dream of falling into an endless abyss,
To wake up at the edge of the cliff,
To be grateful for safety,
To be saved from knowing
What it is
To take a leap
Into the great unknown.

The unknown is like gravity. How must we resist a fall?

Btw, had you posted this ever before?

I guess at times we get pulled back by some forces, like the vessel of milk we had put on the burner to boil?

No, posting it here for the first time.

That point could not have been made, any more beautifully.

I had a feeling that I had read this before.
